We were so impressed with this great accommodation. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded from a standard to a luxury room. We were graciously welcomed and shown around the beautiful and spacious room by a very helpful manager. She recommended restaurants and also organized taxi services for us. The owners are lovely and really showed a interest in our...

Bit far from town. No luggage rack in room. TV very limited. Cold plates for breakfast. Breakfast only served from 8am, needed hot breakfast earlier.Could get the cold element earlier. Room 1 not very warm despite a wall heater. Only view from room 1 was small front garden and wall.

Friendly and helpful staff and hosts. Breakfast was really nice and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Free wifi. Definitly a cosy place to stay with secure parking. A bit far from the centre of town but the service received was worth it. We Will definitely come back.

This was one of the best places we stayed at on our garden route holiday, the rooms were really nice, gardens are beautiful and the staff running the house very friendly and helpful. We were very fortunate with the weather and had breakfast on the patio overlooking the pool every morning, which was very relaxing. I would definitely stay at...

Best on the garden route,in my opinion.But I'll be surprised if you will find a better place to stay. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left,we were treated like friends,rather than guests.everyone connected to the hotel were friendly and informative. A special mention to Sandy who is like a little sergeant major (in a nice way!) The...

Great room, in fact the biggest of our stay in South Africa. Well decorated with safe parking for the car and a great swimming pool to cool off in. Owners and staff are really friendly and the locations is good a short taxi ride into the waterfront costing £5. The only thing stopping five stars is the lack of air...

We spent one night at this B&B. It was fine although we were in the annex area and not the main house. Breakfast was very good and filling. However, I should have read the location description a little more carefully as they are located at least 10-15 minutes from the town center, and for that reason I would not stay...
