We were very please with Elianthe's. On arrival we were greeted by owner Elize who made us welcome and immediately sorted somewhere for us to have dinner. (It was Valentine's Day so not an easy task) The accommodation was well prepared and clean, the location on the town's main street is easy to find with good parking. Breakfasts were good...

We stayed 2 nights at Elianthe Guesthouse and had mixed experiences. The second night electrical problems so we were not allowed any use of electricity apart of one sidelamp. So no ceilingfan although pretty hot. The room was rather small and could have better cleaning. Apart of that we enjoyed our stay, the pool, the breakfast and the bed.

Everything was nearly perfect. Lovely clean, refreshing pool; Attractive room. Lovely garden. Great breakfast; Very helpful hosts. Excellent restaurant 2 doors down (Koornlands). Not quite so good for wheelchair users, I had to get out and walk on crutches in order to get in and out of the bedroom. There was a very steep driveway down to the property also.

We spent a night in room 3, which has two single beds and one double bed. Thankfully we did not have another two people in this room.....it would be a tight squeeze! The booking was for double occupancy. The double bed is tucked in a corner, very hot, no ventilation despite the fan. The saving grace was the table and...
