Thank you Ilse & Laurence for your lovely review, We did achieve "4 Star" points when graded - but opted to remain "3 Star" due to the size of our standard rooms (they are a bit on the small side). But it's great to give people a pleasant surprise and more than they were expecting with things like breakfast. Dave...

My daughter and I spent a wonderful week at The Potting Shed, food was great and the service outstanding. When we requested a change of room to downstairs to accommodate my age, we were assisted immediately and the staff were willing and able to do so with very little fuss.

No hesitation in recommending the hospitality of Annamarie and David as we have stayed at the Potting Shed many times on our journeying between UK and RSA, usually en route to or from George. Have seen the development of this B&B since 2005. Try it and enjoy ! Keith and Ann Millen

We loved our stay at The Potting Shed - friendly English ex-pat owners and management team, recently refurbished rooms were so comfortable (we stayed in the deluxe room, #4) and pretty and the location is peaceful but well placed for activities... plus BEST breakfast we had during our South Africa trip!!
