Reviewed 27 April 2011

Excellent B&B, situated in a nice residential area.
The garden is lovely and has a pool. Furthermore there's a private parking area.
The room was large and tidy, it had stylish furniture and a nice terrace.
Friendly and efficient service, delicious and extensive breakfast!

No negative points, this residence diserves a recommendation!

Josiane and Yvo own and manage this beautiful Guest House, Val and I felt welcome as soon as we met them. Josiane explained interesting places to visit and eat. Both she and Yvo were always friendly and helpful that made our stay pleasant and relaxing.
The breakfasts were delicious, fantastic choice of cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruit and cereals.
The whole area, both Guest House and gardens were kept in beautiful condition with the rooms overlooking the pool area.
In a nutshell, we could find no complaint about this stay, only compliments for providing us with a very relaxing stay, thank you both.

This b&b is the best of the b&b's we have stayed in. Josiane and Yvo, the owners, were so welcoming, friendly and helpful that it made our stay really relaxing.
The breakfasts were delicious, so nice to have fresh food for a change!
The b&b was kept really clean and modern and the bed was very comfortable: our room had everything we needed for our break.
The public area (for breakfast) was well thought out for eating and relaxing and the pool and the furniture around it were very beautiful.
All in all we had a great time and will not hesitate to book again.
Tanks a lot Josiane and Yvo!

Last year during our stay, we told to come back again what we did. The extra wing with new rooms was excellent, beautifully decorated rooms which stunning views.
Sumptuous breakfast with a lot of variation, very nice hosts ...
We will never forget our stay in HottentotsView and we will be recommending this place to family and friends and we will be back next year.

First of all the geusthouse is beautifull!
The welcom we've had coudn't have been better. We were so tired and hungry and it was 23pm but you served us a meal and some lovely drinks anyway. That was realy great.
The rooms are very nice decorated and everything is just tidy. We can't say anything bad at all.
Even breakfast was lovely. We could choose what ever we want. We just had to say wat we wanted and someone would make it for us.

We had never been to South Africa before, but we're sure we'll visit again soon.
You've shown us te most beautifull places, the most delightfull restaurants, the most incredible mountans, animals, and not to forget the finest wine estates.
A holliday as the one we have had by stayin with you we have never had before.
Your giding was perfect and your trips were so well figured out. We never had anything short.

Thanx for everything. We had a holliday like we've never had one before.
Thank you so much and see you soon.
