We had visited some 7 years or so ago and back then we were very impressed. I booked a honeymoon suite for a weekend getaway in celebration of my husband's birthday this time but I was disappointed. On arrival the suite looks beautiful with fresh rose petals on the bed and the bath, but underneath the bath tub was dirty.... More

When we got to the guesthouse, no one was there. We waited 30 minutes in the lobby for someone to show us to our room. One of the cleaning staff ended up assisting us otherwise we would have waited another hour. The suite was okay, but not at all worth the price. I perceived the garden as unkept. The lobby... More

The website misrepresent the truth. The rooms are not properly cleaned. The staff seems not well trained. One has to constantly argue with staff over wrong billings. Personal belongs grew legs and management seems not bothered. The place is an over glorified backpackers than a 4-star guesthouse.

One waiter arrived after 7 who could finally serve us... More

The rooms advertised on the internet are not at all what they look like in real life. You are able to see the messy kitchen were the food is prepared as you enter the building. Our room was tiny. We got a 3 quarter bed instead of the advertised king size bed for honey moon suites. There was no fridge... More

Came to South Africa for a wedding and spent one night at the guesthouse. What a wonderful setting, away from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. Was very impressed with our room and would have stayed another night if I had the time. Owner and staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. They were very helpful with... More

What a wonderful break away from the hustle & bustle of the city. Tranquil surroundings with beautiful views. The staff are friendly and very accommodating and the food was great. I absolutely loved every minute of it and will definitely visit them again.

Great accommodation, friendly staff, great food and breathtaking views. So very peaceful and beautiful. Wonderful in room treatments available for those who fancy a little pampering and spa baths in every room. The owners are very present and very passionate about delivering a good service.

Good day Fazzy, Thank you for your review, first off all I would like to say here that you were the worse guest that we have had the misfortune of hosting.
