We stayed here on our way to the Cape. One night in and out.
The room was comfortable. In fact, the bed was superb! Firm mattress, great duvet, even an electric blanket should we need it.
The welcome was warm and then unobtrusive
But the bathroom only had saloon doors (no privacy on the WC) and only had a shower. And what a shower it was! I have stayed in a couple of "interesting" places in my life, but this shower takes the cake. I'm not even sure why they bothered with a shower door.
There was zero water pressure. And what pressure there was got sprayed around the shower stall out of a calcified shower head.
Without exaggerating, it took me 5 minutes just to get my hair wet.
Thank God we were only staying 1 night because that shower would have ruined our entire stay.
