This place is superb. Paul and Jenny are the most perfect hosts and always prepared to walk the extra mile. We were booked for two nights and in the end we stayed for 7! If we could, we would've stayed longer, but by then they were fully booked. The entrance is not at the kitchen door. There's a lovely front entrance with an extra entrance at the back from the parking area. This entrance has a lovely decorated foyer. Their breakfast is the best we have ever had at a guest house. Thanks Paul and Jenny for even offering our own guests something to drink and for braaiing for us on New Year's Eve. I can recommend this place with conviction as good value for money.
