We stayed at See More Guesthouse during a recent conference and thoroughly enjoyed it! Chris and his staff went out of their way to cater to all our needs. Breakfast was awesome and rooms beautifully appointed and well-laid out. I can recommend See More to anybody for business or pleasure. The towels were the best!

First and foremost, I loved the manner in which this place is decorated - lovely blend between modern and antique. 2nd highlight was the bed - the linen felt really nice and soft, and whatever detergent they use is well chosen because there is no residual smell. I loved the softness of the pillows. Plates and utensils are included in the room. Another nice touch was the collection of DVD's available for guests to use in their rooms, or alternatively to watch in the large flat screen TV in the lounge. The DVD player in the room also had a USB slot, which I used.

Moving on to the negatives... Parking space was very limited. My only big gripe, however, was that the room I was put into was definitely NOT as described in the internet. It was very inferior to what I'd booked. Since it was the only room still available, I had no choice but to take it. I implore the owners to correct the descriptions of their rooms on the Internet sites such as Booking.com and Hotels.com.

When all is said ad done, this is a very nice place to stay for extended periods.

I really feel at home here, it truly is my 'home away from home'. Luxurious, clean rooms with all the comforts. Large DVD selection with DVD players in each room, as well as large TV-room for guests. Pool area, and an outstanding breakfast. Lesley is the perfect host, and makes one feel like family.

This guesthouse could have just been another well appointed guesthouse but it moved into the excellent category with it's really excellent finishing touches.

Our little family of 3 stayed in one room as we were just passing through, but the sleeper couch for my 8 year old was very comfortable and the room was just big enough for the 3 of us to not feel too squashed. The furnishings or the room and the guesthouse are of a high quaity and in addition to the normal amenities we had a small fridge, microwave and some crockery and cutley so we could warm up food if we wanted to. This is very useful if you don't want to eat out all the time.

The guesthouse had some great facilities like a common lounge which my husband and I used once we had put our son to bed. All the rooms have easy access to the lounge so there is no problem leaving a sleeping child in the room. The common lounge has access to the full DSTV package (rooms have a restricted package) as well as providing you with an extensive DVD library in case you can't find anything on DSTV. There is an honesty bar and snack bar if you get thirsty or peckish. I also noticed a gas braai which presumably can be used by guests next to the pool as well as a computer with Internet access.

The yummy breakfast was included in the rates and the guesthouse offers dinner (pre-ordered only) but we didn't eat in.

A number of the guests were businessmen and certainly the location, service and facilities would make it an attractive option for business. As a family, the guesthouse worked well for us too!

Room Tip: We stayed in number 2 which was very close to the common lounge which was very practical for us.
