“Best Business Accomodation in Southern Cape for under R1200 pppn”

The definite place to stay for business in George and surrounding areas. The rooms are of highest quality, clean and the location allows for easy excess to George in General. This has been about the 7th stay for business and I am very happy.

Kind people who try to help if they can.
Showering is difficult because you can't use the hot and cold water at the same time. The location is very good to visit parts of the garden route. The breakfast is good.

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to report that the gas geysers are going to be replaced before the end of the year! We tried very hard to make our green policy work but the geysers just don't want to live up to what we expected, I suppose that's life!

Thank you for the kind 4 out of 5 rating!

We hope you had a wonderful stay in our beautiful country.

Best of the best to you!

I suggest that the carpets on the rooms should be replaced with tiles, then the cleanliness will be excellent. The breakfast were perfect and the bathrooms was out of this world. Keep up the Good work.

The staff and owner were very friendly. The room anemities were excellent. Had a wonderful experience in this beatiful old house that have been renovated and expanded into a great guesthouse. Excellent location with safe inside parking. Breakfast also very good.
