“A great location to get away from the rat race.”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The setting of Peace Valley Guesthouse, with its extensive garden complete with mini lake divided by a small dam and lovely and considerate planting, is superb. There is a small pool and brai for guest use as well as carport next to your own entrance. The accommodation was superb and some very nice touches throughout. Your own balcony (in the double room) overlooking the gardens and surrounding country was major plus, especially if you’re visiting in summer months. The property is a large house, well appointed house with guest accommodation on the upper levels and accessed by your own external stairs. It might not be suitable for the disabled but your host, Lorna, who is a very friendly lady would be able to advise better than I. Lorna has added a lot of very nice touches to the accommodation and these just add to its attraction. These included (but not a comprehensive listing) milk in the fridge; a water filter/cooler in the kitchen; a selection of teas and coffee and lots of literature on local attractions for those who are looking for something local to fill their days. The kitchen in this self catering accommodation is very well equipped. The healthy, continental style breakfast was fantastic. We plan to return to South Africa in a couple of years. We have already said we will definitely plan to spend some time here in the middle of our trip, which would be our relaxer. This is a break from the busy activities of life; a place to chill. We wish we'd had more time available to stay here.

Thank you so much Billy for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Peace Valley. It is always great to get feedback from guests who have stayed and I am delighted that you all had such a good time even if it was so short. As you say next time a longer stay will enable you to explore more of this beautiful area and Peace Valley is a very central location from which to do so and thus enjoy the many sights of the Overberg.

We so appreciated the warm, friendly welcome and the lovely surroundings. This was a great base from which to explore the area - Agulhas, Arniston, Bredasdorop. Restaurants in the town were excellent.

From the moment Lorna came out to meet us until we left, the following morning we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The children enjoyed playing with the dogs, the accommodation ( we had the family room ) was excellent and the conversation with Lorna flowed over a lovely relaxed breakfast. Her book recommendation of the Elephant Whisperer enhanced our later safari.
The only thing we couldn't manage was the weather but we would definitely recommend staying at Peace Valley.

because we were on the way from Oudtshoorn to Cape Town. We liked to stay in Lorna's house and enjoyed breakfast on Good Friday. Because of the cold weather we could not swim in the pool. The garden is fantastic. My daughter liked Lorna's three dogs especially "Diesel".

that we only stayed one night on the way between George and Camps Bay. The guesthouse is located in a lovely setting close to downtown Napier.

This was the 10th gesthouse we had stayed in during an extended trip to SA and it is one that we would like to return to both because of Lorna and her welcome but also because Napier offers the oppoprtunity to explore.

The room we stayed in is the one that has a shower and not a full bathroom but what a room. First of all it is spacious with triple aspect with french doors leading on to a large balcony which has tables and chairs to view the myriad of stars on clear nights. The room is so large that there is space to accomodate a sitting area in front of the flat screen TV plus there is a row of wardrobes offering considerable storage space. The bathroom does what is says on the tin with a powerful and constant shower. And the bed was extremely comfortable. The 2 rooms share a fully equipped kitchen that is a real bonus.

The best bits of my review come from adversity. Napier is a town of about 4000 people based aound a long street - there are restaurants and pub selling Napier beer which should be tried. The night we ate in Napier we had a bag stolen from the hire car. Unfortunately this fact was only discovered the next morning when packing up. Lorna was great as she notified the local police who were very prompt and effecient. The bag was recovered but we still needed to get the relevant information for the insurance company. During this process Lorna has been a star and as a result of her efforts we now have a crime scene number. Despite the "theft" we would return to Napier as it was a purely opportunist crime.

The downsides? there is only one for me and that is Lorna only does healthy breakfasts so no eggs bacon and sausage!

Hi Sue and Pete

Thank you very much for the review of your stay at Peace Valley and I am so pleased that you both enjoyed it even though you had the unfortunate experience you describe. As you say this was a totally opportunistic happening and fortunately your case was recovered quickly.

I would love to see you both again and as you say this is an area that needs longer time in order to allow you to explore and thus fully appreciate what there is on offer in the Overberg. I hope that the lack of a' full English' has not put you off returning as there are healthy alternatives that I am happy to provide and am sure you will equally enjoyl!!!
