“Don't think you can trust the security”
Reviewed September 16, 2007

This was a very pleasant stay only marred by the possible issue that £200.00 of my travelling money was possibly taken from the in room safe soon after I arrived; I took £1000.00 and the money was in my inside pocket throughout the flight to Cape Town and it's hard to contemplate a pick pocket only taking some of the money and leaving £800.00 untouched. The room was extremely pleasant, the breakfast very nice and the whole thing most enjoyable except for my money going missing which of course I couldn't prove even if I tried to. The funny thing was that the Room Information had so little detail - it more or less said the Breakfast times etc. and then went on at great length on how they couldnt be responsible for items left in the room (as if they'd had may experiences like such?). The safe had a key rather than a digital lock so I suppose anyone could've had a spare key.

I hope I am wrong but somehow even many months after my visit I think someone went in the safe when we were out of the room.

Guests told us what was written in a review about security in our guesthouse.
All our rooms got digital safes in February 2005. He writes he stayed at our guesthouse in December 2005!
Baytree123 never contacted us about that his money was stolen. Was it really stolen at our guesthouse? Why did he write a review 2 years after his stay at our guesthouse?
What is said about the disclaimer is vicious. More then 50% of our guests are returning guests. Why do they come back when all their money got stolen?
