What a find! Welcoming, relaxing comfort and care/service. Set in lovely gardens, the guest rooms attached to the spa are comfortable with terrace to relax in the evenings. All staff were friendly and helpful, but, Ida went the extra mile on more than one occasion. Food was lovely, beautifully presented. We'd go back again tomorrow!!

Oriel and her staff, Joseph and Boysen, were wonderfully accommodating. The cottage we stayed in was spacious and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were Delicious. Oriel was very helpful in choosing restaurants and helping us with our transportation needs. They met us at the airport which after 30+ hours of travel was such a relief!

Beautiful house and rooms. The gardens are stunning and breakfast on the back patio was fantastic! We really enjoyed all the "added touches" such as a fruit bowl, cookies, etc. They also had take-out menu's in the rooms which was very helpful. Oriel is a wonderful hostess....she was there to answer all questions. Location is good, but it helps to...

This is a lovely small B & B in the middle of Sandton. We had a lovely room and then access to main house with a lounge and an outdoor barbeque area. A communal fridge had plenty of beer and wines, as well bottles of spirits were available all on an honesty basis. The gardens and pool areas were stunning....
