“An oasis in a busy city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Our second visit and it wont be our last, this really is a special place 5 star in every aspect.
We stayed here before flying home to the UK after touring SA and we flew home much more relaxed this time.
Give it a try, you wont be disappointed

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good rooms.

This is unquestionably a good place to stay. As others have said, the staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are wonderful, the lounging areas are nice, and the whole environment is beautiful. The owner's dog is very friendly, too -- especially at breakfast time when there's bacon.

It's not really near anything in terms of walking distance. If you have your own car, or are fine with getting a taxi to/from wherever you want to go, then the location works fine - shopping centers like Nelson Mandela Square are only 10 minutes or so by car, and there's pretty easy freeway access.

All in all a very nice place, I'd absolutely stay again.

When we got there it was like going to your own house. All of that security and friendliness was brilliant and the food was excellent especially the orange juice. It is situated near the entire write place and is so beautiful inside and out. The staffs are so friendly they become your friends and the rooms are so comfortable I fell asleep as soon as I touched the bed. It was an amazing experience to go there.

  • Liked — The staff and the acomidation.
  • Disliked — nothing.
