I suppose we are hopelessly biased.

We have been back seven years in a row. We have never stayed anywhere better. Not sure how anywhere could be better. And the service from Katherine Arthur Hazel and all the lovely staff cannot be surpassed.

For that final touch of luxury recommend to stay in Gelatenheid to watch the sun go down in the valley and the shadow creep up the mountain -with a sundowner and then a short walk down to town for one of the great restaurants. Dear me. Can't wait to go back next year. (And we are safe in writing this review as we have already booked)

The owners Arthur and Katherine are very charming people and even though we could sadly only stay for two nights they made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped through
the front door. Our double room was exceptionally comfortable and extremely tastefully decorated a reflection of the detail shown in the public rooms of the main house. The breakfasts which are delicious and beautifully presented are taken in the peaceful and shaded courtyard by the pool with Anna the dog for company. This the only place we stayed during our ten day holiday that offered laundry at no extra cost a nice touch as was the well stocked bar in our room and welcome half bottle of champagne again all complimentary. Remarkably when we came to leave there was nothing to pay in the way
of extras only the sadness that we could not extend our stay with our gracious hosts but resolved to return one day soon.

This guest house was a real treat to stay at, a warm welcome that continued throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble. The owners and staff always had time to give advice or just have a friendly chat they also knew their guests by name. You will also get a warm welcome from Anna the most friendly dog I have ever met. The accomodation was to a very high standard and your every need catered for home from home. The breakfast again faultless fresh fruit freshley squeezed orange juice home made muesli, and a hot breakfast cooked to order wonderful. Also not to forget the laundry service what a treat.So if you are looking for a great place to stay with a feel good factor this is it.

Luxury guesthouses to suit everyone. Each one secluded from the others, the only time you see other guests is during the fantastic cooked breakfasts - fresh fruit, juices, smoothies, continental, full cooked with delicious local sausages, delicious preserves, and tips and hints about places to go from Arthur and Katherine.
Last time I was here was too short, this time we spent 4 nights here, still not long enough! Next time....
