My business partners and I stayed two nights at the Gooseberry, having found it on trip advisor.
The staff was exceptionally kind and attentive, the breakfast was delicious (they even waited to shut breakfast down so we could get some exercise first.
Many nice little touches, and not the tacky ones, but little things like the staff offering to bring me full coffee service just because I was sitting outside working on my computer.
The rooms are a bit smaller, but it is an inn so that is to be expected. Sherry and chocolates in the room, and the owners art on the walls. Not a place I would bring kids, mostly because of the dainty glassware and calm quiet atmosphere.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay, for business or a getaway to Joberg.
