Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 5, 2007

We just returned from South Africa where we had the pleasure of staying at the Cypress Cotttage. SInce the begining of the year they changed owners and it looks like they have done a lot of work to the rooms. The BB was spotless and welcoming and the rooms spacious. We only stayed one night but it was fantastic. Try the restaurant next door for a bit of a treat.

Reviewed May 26, 2007

If you are looking for a hippie accomodation go there:) The couple who is running the place are ok and funny. But the condition of that place is awful. Don´t let you fool yourself with the nice long passage in front of the house. This one looks really invitating but as soon as you will have a look into the rooms you will leave again. Unfortunately it was the only choice we had, but I would never go back again as the rooms are in a terrible state. the couple, who are teachers, are only renting the place so they are not the owners. Both are very well-educated people, from the Hippie generation. The breakfast is nice and good. It is very sad that the rooms are in such a bad condition.

Management response:Responded September 27, 2010

This review was posted on 27 May 2007. We (Etienne and Vera van Leeuwen) took new ownership of this Guesthouse on 1 August 2007. Is it in any way possible to take this review off the current list of reviews ? Can I send the original deed of transfer as proof. We are trying to get rid of this review now for some time but to no avail. Please can you advise us.
