                Nice place for à short stay ”

                The neighbourhood is nice as you can walk to shops and restaurant safely. There is a nice garden as well and breakfast is good (buffet + 1 option from menu). The pool is a bit disappointing and there is no isolation between rooms.

                Lovely property and room. Breakfast was great”

                House converted to accommodation. Homey feel. The room was very comfortable and had a relaxing feel. Great breakfast set too. Was greeted by their house cat at night when we checked in and also greeted by their 2 house dogs in the morning.

                Stayed two nights with two room -- an apartment and a double room, both in the garden area. Both rooms were excellent and quiet. We had a van and there was plenty of room to park it. Staff were extraordinarily helpful. The breakfast was also excellent. This was one of the best places we stayed on our trip to South Africa. We highly recommend it.
