This place may be an excellent backpackers and does have a very scenic communal area and garden but, as a guesthouse, is nothing special. Our room (a double) was very small but clean and overlooked the garden which was plesant but not if guests stay up late in the communal area drinking and talking - they could be heard through the closed window pretty clearly. Breakfast was available at a very steep R40 and was good enough. The location is not the best, not being in very close vacinity to anything decent. Neil (the guy running the place) was friendly enough without being particularly informative.
