Lisa is a very friendly helpful host. Relaxing pool and garden area where we enjoyed a beautifully presented breakfast. Lovely place to stay. We will definitely be back when next in the vicinity. Thank you.

Centrally situated guest house with above average quality rooms and a host with a very professional attitude to making sure guests comfort is a right. Would suit small families and couples. Breakfast in the garden beside the pool under cover was very good.

The room we stayed in was spacious, very well thought out and had a lot of pleasing natural decor.

The stay was absolutely amazing stay and the staff and management are super friendly and most welcoming. The setting is quaint and the breakfast and setting is fantastic. Nothing is too much in the small Karoo town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty, the attention to detail, the small unexplained things, the dogs the cat the ducks and the horses - the odd shaped rooms - the garden with quirky stone men - the warm and inviting lounge leading onto a large shaded garden with swimming pool, bedrooms with French doors and shutters opening into the garden - the harshness of the Karoo that gives you grace in the evening and gentleness in the morning. Our guest accommodation and facilities are separate from our own, affording our guests a level of privacy not normally associated with a guesthouse. We accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) and guests are most welcome to use the Wi-Fi. ... more   less
