We have been here a couple of times now and think it is a lovely, charming place with a lot of character. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the restaurant and it's nice to be able to stay in with our 3 yr old daughter. The location is also really good, in the nicer, quiet part of town, close to some good restaurants if you do want to go out and right next to the Drosdy museum. We'll be back.

Room Tip: We had the honeymoon room which is upstairs and has a private terrace with great mountain views. The...

One of the best Guesthouses we have been to in S.A. Perfectly situated next to the drosty with an amazing view over the mountain, very nice buildings and big and very nice rooms. Don't understand the people that write bad reviews.... Very charming, would love to come back!!!!

Really nice hosts, Drosty Museum across the road, perfect boutique hotel style accomodation with an incredible view in a beautiful setting: a garden with cottages. Very family friendly. Would definitely go there again.

Good value for money in a splendid location. Easy walk to restaurants and places of interest. Enjoyed the pool. The room was small and the en suite quite basic but this was reflected in the price we paid.

An off chance late booking caught the last room and table for two on a busy day. Made particularly welcome and settled In with tea and promise of evening dinner although short of staff. Quiet spacious room overlooking large garden proved to adequately fit the bill. Evening meal was enjoyed well cooked accompanied by a good house wine. A peaceful night and a hearty breakfast ensured a good start to a new day an we were

The Inonesian/ Dutch couple did everything to make our stay very comfortable. The food (some of it also rooted in Asia) was excellent, although the restaurantroom could have been livelier. Maybe it was (for me) the wrong music.

very nice guesthouse, centrally located next to the Drosty Museum and a few restaurants to go to by foot. Small rooms with nearly no place to put a suitcase on, but nicely decorated, clean, friendly people. Pool. perfect for one night on the way from/to cape town, we would not recommend it for more days. Restaurant was closed unfortunately.
