Stayed overnight on route to Port Elizabeth, what an amazing evening, Pat met us on arrival and made sure we were comfortable. She also was very concerned that we knew where to go and what to do, maps were offered and a quick rundown of the area followed. Breakfast the next morning was great and way more than I would...

We were initially very skeptical of booking a B&B in South Africa. But Lynn and Pat have a great place in Bridgewater B&B.
