Sadly we have to state that this was a rather strange place to stay.
While the rooms where absolutely clean, they were rather minimalistic. There is no toilet door or fridge, you are not even allowed to consume your own drinks - I have never seen this in a B&B in 5 months in which I am in South Africa. Instead there is a bar where you can get local and Beglian beer for reasonable prices, but it was completely empty and it closed at 9 when we were there.
Our room had a door to the next one and we could hear every word that was spoken - unfortunately the neighbours talked until midnight.
We did not really feel welcome as the owner - not like his wife - can be described as quite unfriendly - at least that is our impression. As we only spent one night there, he might just have had a bad day.
It might be the right place to spend one night as the prices are decent, but we prefer a hearty welcome - as we experienced it so oftern in SA - to a modern but minimalistic room.
