We stayed in the executive suite at Weltevreden Guest House for 4 days over the Christmas Holidays in 2013. What a welcome we got from Mike, Maryka and Anjo. We had the use of the whole bottom floor to ourselves as the suite only sleeps 2 and we were encouraged to use the kitchen and reception rooms as if it was our own home. Beautifully furnished with antiques and a massive collection of art (although it was not to my taste) this historical building has been sensitively restored.
Breakfasts are served in the Lekker Neh Restaurant a short walk over the grass from the front door. Fabulous menu - we tried almost every selection and all were faultless. Staff in the restaurant are discreet and yet attentive - perhaps that is a contradiction but it is so nice not to be constantly interrupted mid conversation with a "are you enjoying your meal" and yet we never felt that we were being neglected.
One of the biggest perks of staying at Weltevreden is that the restaurant is open in the evenings until 9pm which means you can enjoy a glass of wine with dinner without having to worry about driving anywhere. The dinner menu is also very good.
A magically homely atmosphere in a stunning tranquil garden setting. We went and had a look at the childrens area which is a great idea for young couples where the little ones can run around. I must mention that although the kiddies corner was always busy we were never disturbed by the noise. We felt as though we were leaving family behind when we left to go home!
