Thanks for a lovely stay. We will be back!
The only complaint was that there was noise from the room above us. (e.g.walking on the wooden floors) But otherwise our room was very nice and had everything we needed.

Bonne Esperance, Stellenbosch South Africa. Our stay here was perfect: We received a warm welcome back (we have stayed several times), beautiful rooms and fittings, courtyard, close to Stellenbosch town and university, free wifi, and just the best breakfast. My husband was there for business and I for luxury and and being close to town.
Thank
you very much!

The guest house was more than we expected. When they said a small room we expected to be in a shoe box, but it was more than enough space to do what we needed to from a room. The guest house was well maintained and it was like a family atmosphere. I look forward to a longer stay there for my 5 year wedding anniversary next year . Thanks for a wonderful night. Jan& karin.

Extremely well received and stating at the hotel for a beautiful dinner was just in line with our interests. The small cottages in the garden suited us perfectly. We could easily think of staying at least one day more, partly because of the interesting museum next door

Thank you very much
