Thrilled to be back in this lovely spot. Friendly and helpful hosts, delightful setting and nice breakfasts. Off street parking (and free car wash), inviting pool. Close access to good restaurants. Certainly plan to come again.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and our good breakfasts. I do aplogise for the tight parking area, there were a lot of cars, fortunately this does not happen often. We will have to reorganise the parking bays. Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again.

This was an ideal place to stay for a short break - set in lovely gardens and with very professional staff, who were very hospitable. Breakfast set out poolside was excellent and the room although small was comfortable.

A slice of middle England in South Africa. One stop away from the retired Sargent Major reading the Telegraph at breakfast. Wonderful. Easy walk to beach and shops. Great garden and a life I wish I lived.
