The service is what one would expect from a 5 star hotel, with the added benefit of a very nice couple providing warmth and hospitality. The property and the garden are the best in the area and the rooms have every sort of comfort one could need.

Nothing, but nothing is too much trouble for Johan and Jo-Anne, who run this very comfortable guest house. The good-sized rooms are stylishly decorated with high quality finishes, both in the rooms themselves and the bathrooms, which provide masses of towels, bath additives, shampoo and conditioner. The rooms have a frig with some drinks on a pay for basis. Johan's...

Dear Martyn I am chuckling away as I type! Guests like the two of you make it so worth our while to be doing what we are.
