Reviewed August 3, 2006

We stayed here for 4 nights during July 06. Absolutely wonderful. Stunning views from rooms across the Bay (unfortunately we didn't manage to see the whales as our weather wasn't very good). Very quiet, very safe. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. On good days you get your breakfast served on the veranda whereas the rainy days its served at your breakfast bar. Beds were very comfortable with fresh white linen. We had rooms next to each other - both were comfortable and roomy. So much more than just a B&B. Recommend to any and all. Ideal location for exploring the Cape.
