We only stayed for 1 night after a day at Eagle Encounters, before moving onto Hermanus to go whale watching the next day. Both activities are an easy drive.
Although we didn't stay here long, we had a wonderful stay and would happily return.
It is well situated within easy walk of town and the balcony room we stayed in was an excellent size, even with our 2 children in the room. Everything we could possibly need was provided in the room and instructions on how to work the wifi and the tv were clearly displayed, which saved having to find someone to tell you to make things work which I have so often found necessary.
The beds were comfortable, the shower was good and the breakfast was delicious.
What made this an especially good place to stay was such friendly, attentive service and all the extras which are not really required of a guest house, but show the management really care about the experience their customers receive and always make you especially feel positive about your stay.
The lady who greeted us (Danika?) was so helpful and friendly, showed us where everything was, explained where we could go for dinner and offered to order food in for us. We ended up just grabbing some pre cooked food from the local Spar and when I asked if we could borrow some knives and forks, fully laid out trays were brought up to our room. The children were also brought hot water bottles in little teddy bear covers which they loved. Nothing was too much trouble and we really appreciated the efforts the staff went to to ensure their customers had a great stay.
