We stayed at Roosboom Guest Apartments whilst attending a Medical Conference during the day at a nearby venue. Our friendly hosts, Ian and Mabel walked the extra mile to make our stay most relaxing, comfortable and memorable. We enjoyed a hearty, well prepared breakfast every morning. Highly recommendable!!

Our host, Ian, is one of the most genuine and helpful people in the business. Attention was paid to detail when they decided on the finishing touches in this guesthouse and for a change you can actually make a cup of real coffee in the room,not the ubiquitous Nescafe sachets that we've come to expect.

We have stayed at Roosboom many times over years of travel and can confirm that Roosboom is consistently the best. Rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable and the view is worth buying a bottle of wine to sip on the verandah and enjoy! Thanks Mabel and Ian for being wonderful hosts. We look forward to our next visit.
