“Highlight of our time in South Africa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2008

We stayed at the Aanhuizen Guest House for one night at the end of our two week stay in South Africa. We really saved the best until last; it doesn't do it justice to describe this place as a guest house - this place is better than most top class hotels. We stayed in a beautifully decorated chalet style room overlooking the pool in a pretty landscaped garden. We were made to feel really welcome by the owners, who were very friendly and provided a lovely vegetarian home-cooked meal in the evening. Would have loved to have stayed longer - will certainly be back next time we visit South Africa.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2007

This is a really lovely guest house. The rooms had brilliant beds and bedding, superb fluffy towels in a very spacious well equipped bathroom - there was also a seperate walk in shower. The back door of our room (4) opened onto the swimming pool area. The front terrace had great views over the countryside. Two sisters run the guest house with the help of their husbands, one of them has a great flair for interior design as the decor was very nice, lots of small but lovely touches. We had both breakfast and an evening meal there and the food was superb. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and hair driers, there is also off road parking for your hire car, at just less than £20pppn for B&B we thought this was a great find, we were sorry we were only staying one night as there was a lot to do and see in this beautiful area.
