In general this is a very comfortable and well appointed guesthouse. My room was big as was the bath room. There is a swimming pool and lovely gardens and the location is convenient for exploring the False Bay area.Two minor gripes:-For some reason the coffee sachets in my room were not replenished-Breakfast is only served from 8:00. I appreciate that they are on "Cape Town Time" but as a business traveler this is inconveniently late in order to get to morning meetings. As a tourist that likes to make an early start, I believe that this breakfast time would also be a hindrance.

Not suitable for business travel. Breakfast only starts at 8 am. They will make a take away pack for breakfast the next day, but it's sandwiches which was made the day before.No staff around to take keys and open gate when you want to leave before 8am, and therefore have to leave the main gate open in order to leave (on checkout). This puts other guests at risk. Room has no netting in front of windows, and the light in the room is so poor that blinds have to be open to see anything, but anyone walking past can look straight in.Refrigerator compressor noisy, so had to unplug it.Room has no air conditioner.

Very nice stay. Only complaint is the branches falling on to the corrugated roof at night. This did disrupt sleep for a few people. Otherwise, the accommodation was spacious and comfortable. I would stay here again.

A pleasant venue & room. I was pressurized for time due to commitments and the staff made sure that I did not have to wait (check in, breakfast, check out).I would liked to have stayed a further night.
