This is a very strange place. Half of it is quite cozy, the other half looks like a motel... I was surprised to find such a large parking area in the middle of everything.
This place is decorated with a range of artwork, which is nice.
I had a very large room (one of the poshest ones, quite pricey) with an Indian/colonial decoration, but it was not as superb as it could be, with an ugly fridge and a plastic dustbin in the middle of everything. There is definitively not that much attention to detail.
One positive thing is that they made dinner for me on a Sunday night, which was quite good but quite expensive as well.
And I must add that I have been surprised to be billed R50 for the wifi connection (I guess it's better when you are told beforehand what it would cost) ... and I had to pay R20 for a coffee, which is fairly expensive for South Africa (where most b&b offer you that kind of drinks for free) - but the coffee was good.
All in all, it could be a very nice place, but it is not.
