This is a charming guesthouse situated within walking distance to the town centre. Mario's and Rachelle are charming hosts, and appear genuinely interested in their guests. Our room was located through a delightful enclosed garden, and contained all that is required for a couple of nights. There is no fridge in the room, but one is available for small items...

The rooms and bathrooms were comfortable and well equipped. Marius met us at the door and immediately gave us a quick guided tour of the place. He and Rachelle were very friendly and helpful. We chose not to have breakfast there, but went to eat out instead. Two comfortable chairs in the rooms instead of 1 would be appreciated if...

We spent two nights at this B&B and had a comfortable stay. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Marius who gave us useful maps of the town. The guesthouse is tastefully decorated and our room opened onto a courtyard with a colourful garden. I loved the Aloe Ferox products placed in the bathroom for guests' use and we popped...

We really enjoyed our one night stop over at La Rachelle on our way to Cape Town. Rachelle made is feel at home straight away and was very chatty. The rooms have lots of character and are more than adequate for a few nights stay. Rachelle gave us several suggestions of places to eat and tried to put them in...

Great place to stay. Very centrally situated, near restaurants and signts. The room was very clean and welcoming. The beds had electric blankets which were necessary as it was an exceptionally cold night. The room we had was very quiet which was great as we are slight sleepers. A light breakfast is included in the rate and it was all...
