The welcome from the Staff was excellent and that experience continued - they simply couldn't do enough to make us comfortable. Fruit, biscuits and even a small carafe of Port in the room; a breakfast that we'll struggle to beat anywhere; and additional meals (when requested)

Dear Guest, thank you for your great review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologise for not having more TV channels available. But this is the DSTV Standard Hospitality Package. And to be honest, I'm not happy with it either. Unfortunately there is nothing much you can do about it. Every additional channel will cost you extra. And this is per TV license or room respectively. More competition would remedy. Kind regards, Owner, Wild Olive Guest House
