Stunning B&B with lovely view of the Table Mountains. Staff is exceptionally nice and will go out of their way to assist you in anything you need assistance with (restaurant bookings, trip bookings, recommendations of trips, tours etc.). I can highly recommend this place and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Sally, Mike, Natalie and Inga looked after us superbly. Our room was clean and comfortable whilst the beds and linen were a dream. The breakfasts were memorable, almost the best part of our day enjoying the birds, the view and the attentive service.
