This was the fifth of our six stops from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We had a wonderful welcome from Michael who was very attentive and helpful - including making recommendations and our dinner reservation at a nearby restaurant.
Our room was amazingly large with bath and separate shower area to one side. It was unusual but worked well. It took a few mins to work out how to lower all of the reed blinds as there were so many windows but our room was not overlooked. Loved the location of sep rooms in diff parts of the gardens. We slept well during our overnight stop although the AC unit was directly above our bed.
The mini bar works on an honesty basis and it was nice to find loads of plug sockets in the room including one English one!
In the morning we enjoyed the visual delights of this African themed guest house. Also had a great chat with Michael and with the manager, Desiree, who also provided a great suggestion re a coffee stop on our way to the game reserve which was to be our final stop.
We thought the website provides a fair representation of the venue and were surprised by some of the negative reviews here. Sure there are some oddities at Simga but we had a very positive experience and the staff showed that they will do whatever they can to make your stay a good one.
