“Simply Lovely”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Stayed there last night after a couple of meetings in the area - it was absolutely lovely, my room was perfect and the service was fantastic. We also used the conferencing facilities which were also very good, and very convenient for a group meeting. Thanks!

The manageress earned our praise for being the only B&B that checked on us before we arrived, they had already prepared dinner for us and asking whether we wanted dinner and when we were expected to arrive. The room was comfortable and well appointed - with a selection of wines available, Dinner was homely and delicious. Breakfast was slightly disorganised but good nevertheless, just failing to reach the high standards we were accustomed to during our SA tour, anyone having not experienced SA hospitality at all will not be disappointed however, Very helpful advice regarding where to still find flowers.

Room Tip: We looked at several other rooms and they looked very different.....we were happy with Wynkamer - th...

The purpose of staying here was to base ourselves to go see the flowers. And a good choice indeed. Arrival a little late due to bad weather plus me not feeling well at all. They offered to bring some soup to the room, butternut, was yummy and did me so well. The room we stayed in is called the "Koistal", only have about 10 rooms if not mistaken , each individually named and decorated. Our room is in deep red, with pine through out, gave a lovely warm feeling to the room. It needed it as the only heat was from an electric blanket which is not for me. The bed was very very comfortable.The bathroom had a stand alone victorian bath, and a huge shower. Don't know why they have a TV there as the channels are very limited , 3 or 4 and is very small. Better to do without as the setting overlooking the Oilfants river and vineyards is perfect. Breakfast taken daily in the main house upstairs, very personal and just the right amount. Staff very accommodating and friendly. Just be aware about payment as was surprised having made the booking via booking.com stating 50% deposit taken that i ended up having to pay for the full amount.

Room Tip: Look up the "Koistal", I liked it but that is just me not to close to the main house. I am...

Wow, what a find. This beautiful B & B tucked away in the vine-filled valley of the Olifants river in Northern Cape was perfect. Fantastic bedrooms which any 5 star hotel would be proud of. The breakfast on the upper terrace overlooking the wonderful green valley having the best scrambled eggs ever was spectacular. Hilsa was a wonderful host and we will back there some day.

Room Tip: all rooms facing the valley are very good. Nos one and two have self-catering facilities which are...

The manager and staff was very friendly and willing to help,
it felt like I arrived as a stranger and left as a friend.
Beautiful view and rooms, loved the character and history of the main
building. Great home cooked food!
Hope to be seeing you again soon.
