Thank you! It is so good to hear that you liked our garden, the staff our rooms and breakfast. It means a lot to us if our guests recommend us to others.

Ginnegaap was one of the few places I've stayed in that felt like home. The food and wifi is excellent. Friendly helpful staff. My advice though is rather make sure you have a room further from reception so you can sleep in.More
