My home away from home. I stay there every three weeks and just love every time. Always made to feel so welcome. Really good value for money. Comfortable room with fridge, aircon, TV, nicely furnished and absolutely clean.

Balcony Manor is a good guest house for a traveller needing to stay over for one or two evenings. Very attractive from outside and the rooms are not bad. There are however a number of rooms, some of which are better than others. I suggest ask to see the rooms before checking in to make sure you get a bigger...

We stayed at Balcony Manor from 10 - 12 October 2014. Staff was very friendly and welcoming on arrival. Room seemed nice however on closer inspection we realised that the tile floors in the room was very dirty. On the Saturday morning we complained and apparently they cleaned the room but on Saturday evening we did the same test and...

What a delightful experience. Stienie and the staff made us feel so welcome, even after we had special requests. I’m an avid woodsman, and truly enjoyed the craft and history behind some of the furniture pieces. We visited quite a few of the surrounding areas. We were able to access the main roads easily and find our way around. White...

We booked with Balcony Manor for a family holiday in Dec. Online the property looked charming. Further reassured by their '4 star' rating we decided to give it a try. On arrival we were given a rather sour greeting - not in keeping with the warm welcome one would expect from a guesthouse. Unfortunately rather than being charming - this...

We had booked the Victoria room for 3 nights end September/beginning October 2012 and received a written confirmation. Our friends in White River reconfirmed the booking a few days before our arrival and were told that the guest house was not booked out and we may choose between several rooms. When we arrived, we were received by a lady in...

We stopped over at Balcony manner during October 2011 for one night only. The stay was very disappointing. Our rooms were at the back of the manner near the staff quaters and so we had their noise coming into our room which carried on until past 10:30pm. The rooms are very average for the price we got charged. In the...

This was an unexpected surprise. We did not have a plan. We stopped & had lunch & asked a local where to stay that night. They directed us to Balcony Manor. What a delight! The B&B was so much more, the rooms were all beautiful, the house looked "historic" with the plaster work, dining room, stairs etc. The value is...
