The accommodation is clean, comfortable and with the added advantage of facilities for self catering if you wish. The breakfasts were excellent and if possible served on the terrace. The owners try to leave nothing to be desired. We'll come again!!

Second time we went to this B&B. Last year we came across it by coincidence, this time we booked it straight. Very nice rooms, a wonderful little pool inviting you to have a refreshing dive before enjoying a sun-downer-drink on your balcony, just magnificent. Very lovely people running this place. We will return for sure.

Excellent B and B. Wonderful rooms, with balconies overlooking the river. A really fantastic breakfast. Lovely situation on the river. Dale could not have been more helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. We even tried fishing in the river Kowie. A very pretty garden with a lovely pool.
