Denise and David are excellent hosts - so friendly and made us feel very much at home. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed a very delicious breakfast. If ever in Sutherland again will stay at Primrose Cottage.

The very charming Denise and David...

Two nights stay at this small Primrose Cottage B&B did not disappoint! Denise & David made us very welcome in this small and remote North Cape small town.

Comfortable accommodation, excellent hosts. Lovely small Karoo town. Brilliant star gazing with Jurg and a good visit to SALT. Most delicious lamb shank & lemon meringue pie on this planet. Tranquil and peaceful.

Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. The rooms were beautifully appointed, warm and cosy. Breakfast was excellent and the wealth of knowledge shared of routes, passes and trails was most helpful. Will most definitely return

What a lovely home! We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Primrose Cottage this weekend, and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Our Hosts David & Denise where wonderful! They welcomed us with open arms, and went a step further than usual guest houses and booked our dinner reservation (which was extremely thoughtful of them). The breakfast was amazing...

WE had the pleasure of staying at Primrose Cottage again in April 2016 - and now have good friends there to share our travel adventures with.
