Great place , very friendly and helpful , extremely accommodating of requests. I will definitely consider staying here again as I travel a lot to East London. Just book directly with them and don't use a booking website , its faster and more convenient

Nice and quiet guesthouse with great rooms. Breakfast is more than adequate at a relaxed pace. Traffic is not congested. Plenty of restaurants close by to choose from such as the Nahoon pub, Cow Shed etc..
