We had a wonderful stay. It's a great guest house, central and with all the comforts a 4*-stay should come with. BUT there were 2 major No-Nos: a) the owners deducted the second half of our payment from my credit card without my permission, having illegally stored my card info on their computer (we were planning to pay cash when it turned out we had already "paid"). b) the owners are flying an old (Apartheid) South African flag in their bar, raising major questions about their political values/racism/equality. For us, that's a reason not to go back.
