An African Villa is a good guest house in a nice location. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts good. However, if you have an early start you will need a packed breakfast as they only start the full breakfast at 8. The staff are...More

About
Description
The Villa comprises two houses which form part of a Victorian terrace dating from 1892. These double stories have been joined and so the inside spaces are very spacious. “It's like walking into a tardis” More someone has written on Tripadvisor! The hotel is owner managed. Location is vital when choosing a vacation venue and the Villa is within an easy walk of most tourist attractions while some, (like the fabulous beaches) are a short taxi ride away. There is a small plunge pool in a peaceful courtyard where a very full breakfast is served in summer. (In winter we serve in a sociable dining room with an eco-friendly fire blazing). Your hosts will happily arrange car rental, restaurant bookings, tours etc if required. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in all rooms. A staff member is on duty throughout the night to offer complimentary port and sherry and there is also an honesty bar available. Parking is on street at no charge (with street guard) - though most manage without a car. Less
