After a long drive from Johannesburg to St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape, we where pleasantly surprised when we arrived at ThatchWood guest house.

Thatch Wood guest house in St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape is truly a home away from home. We where made to feel right at home from the moment we arrived.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and relaxing. We experienced the most wonderful hospitality from the owner and the staff alike. The food was wonderful and the garden and surrounds absolutely beautiful.

I will truly advise anyone travelling in that direction to book with them.

We stayed here for two night nights and loved it............wish we could have spent longer there.

A warm and freindly welcome, with a glass of fine wine to greet us. Really infomrative chat and good tips for where to eat out in St Francis Bay.

The room was fantastic............comfy and cosy.

St Francis Bay is a beautiful town.............and the beaches are simply stunning!

Great places to eat out as well................i have never seen portions of that saw which i saw in Barrons - doggy bag required!! Five Elements was good as well

Very friendly host and excellent stylish African themed rooms with large well fitted bathrooms.

There is an honesty bar if you fancy a drink.
Very good breakfast

We would certainly stay there again and would recommend it to others. This was our second stay in three years.

This was just perfect from start to finish. Although we arrived late at night, we were welcomed warmly and shown to our rooms. The rooms were beautifully decorated in an african style and the bathrooms were huge. Breakfasts were great and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful.

The owners Harrie & Sarah make sure you feel at home, allowing you to relax and enjoy the stay. We will be back!

This was our last stop on a recent golfing trip, and what a lovely way to finish, the rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms excellent. But the thing that makes it special are the hosts Harrie and Sarah. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The honesty bar is a great place to chat and discover things, and they were good enough to let us use their Braii (Barbecue) on the last night as the restaurants in St Francia Bay are a little limited. Thatchwood is just across the road from St Francis Links golf which is absolutely superb and well worth a visit
