From the time I booked until the time we left we received nothing but excellent service from Hennie and Sandra. When I mentioned in my booking e-mail that two of our party was mobility impaired, Hennie even told me how many steps there are in order to explain exactly what to expect so that we could make an informed choice. This guest house is unique – the house itself is more than 150 years old and lovingly restored. There are so many antiques and old curiosities to see in the lounge, dining room and bedrooms, I think if you stay a week you will continuously find little treasures you have missed before. Do make time to read through the file in the bedroom – this is not your standard hotel information file. It is a detailed history of the house, its people through the ages, and the surrounding area. You can pre-book dinner; highly recommended as it is most delicious and breakfast is scrumptious as well. The home-made bread and jam is yummy! The rooms are comfortable and comforting – a real home away from home. Toiletries and hairdryer are supplied. Thank you, Hennie and Sandra, for your hospitality. We hope to be back soon!
