    We had a lovely large room, clean linen and there was nothing lacking. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. We were well looked after by our friendly hostess and host. THANK YOU BOTH FOR SUCH A SUPER STAY

    It felt like we had arrived at a family member's house rather than a stranger's establishment. The welcome was warm and lovely. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. The food was freshly made and very delicious and there was plenty of it:)...More

    Excellent and peaceful place to rest after a long trip. The gesture was superb. The place really feels like home. It was a great experience for the first time. I would surely recommend The Barracks. ;-)

    Lovely place to stop for the night when making the drive up or down to the cape. Mike and his wife are greats hosts and we’re very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was delicious! Would definitely stay at the barracks again.
