Loved our stay. Lovely large room and bathroom. Great breakfast and room was made up by the time we returned after eating, which was pretty impressive. Owners very keen to help and recommended great restaurants. Only downside is the creaky floorboards above. It was a great find in a pricey town.

This is without doubt the finest guest house I have ever stayed in. It is beautifully appointed, the hosts cannot do enough for their guests and welcomed us into their lovely home. The location is super and everything in the Town is within easy walking distance.When we inadvertently left some items of clothing behind they assisted me in ensuring that the items were returned to us. All in all a superb experience and we will return to Centre Ville next year.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are fabulous!!

We spent 2 nights here and loved our visit. Elsa gave us great advice on where to visit when there are so many wineries to choose from and her suggestions were excellent. Our room was very comfortable with lots of space - and lots of character!

Very nice place to spend some days/nights. Elsa & Joaco so friendly and worried about our stay. Breakfast is good but it will be better if it has more variety. I.e. pancakes/hotcakes, french toast,

Dear Friends
Thank you for all the beautiful photos that you send us regarding the cherry Festival in America.
Thank you for the review. If you asked for Frensch Toast we would gladly have made it for you and we also make omelets if guests ask. We have such a variety of bread and fresh fruits/cheeses/yoghurt/fresh juice and cereals that it is most of the time more than our guest would expect and also the full cooked breakfast prepared to each guests choice. Next time just ask and we would gladly try to please you.

Kind regards
Elsa

Jacob and Elsa made our first trip to South Africa unforgettable. They welcomed us into their home and nothing was any trouble. Good palce to base yourself for local golf courses and restaurants. Dutch East well recommended and value for money. Leopards Leap wine tasting well worth a try.
