Conveniently located with secure parking in a quiet suburb that is within a chip and a putt of dozens of good restaurants (An Uber cost 4 of us ZAR24). The hosts bend over backwards to help and really make one feel at home. The rooms are spacious, properly equipped and have the full suite of TV channels. The missus and...

You can also access kitchen if you like cooking. Ambiance is nice and I really enjoyed the sunrise behind the palm trees. Excellent and prompt service,...

Sadly I spent less than 9hrs at the Glen Marion but that was enough for me to see how amazing Poppie and her hubby are as hosts! I ran very late because of a meeting and only got there at 11pm. They opened for me without a fuss despite having gone to bed much earlier. The room has everything you...

Excellent. Clean, neat, friendly service. You can'nt get better anywhere. Owners are super friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is served on time and very special. If you do order a meal for the evening you can not get better. The guesthouse is safe and near all necessary places of interest. Near schools, hospitals and big malls.

Such an amazing time, the moment you walk in you understand why they're always booked sometimes 2 months ahead. The staff were amazing, great amenities, and the room was just lovely... You simply just realise why they have earned so many previous endorsements for being the best at what they do, I'm always coming back

Stayed here for two nights with family and relatives. Exceptionally clean and great attention to detail. The couple that owns the place were always around to assist. Rooms are modern and more "hotel rooms" than "B&B rooms". Breakfast is cooked fresh to your liking. No wonder this place is often fully booked.
