“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely guest house with great views, stylish and well appointed rooms and lots of lovely touches in the room (such as fresh flowers, fresh coffee and a little sherry night-cap!). There is a very friendly welcome and a delicious breakfast! Superb value for money and highly recommended.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

Beautiful, modern guesthouse with three self catering rooms which lead onto a well maintained garden.

Room was spacious and tastefully decorated. Pleasantly surprised with sherry for a night cap.

Delicious 3 course breakfast with freshly baked muffins.

Would definitely revisit. Highly recommended.

I've stayed here nearly every time I've been to South Africa for the past couple of years. Consistently great value and service. Rob and Marianne are always welcoming and helpful with suggestions for things to do in the area (they introduced me to poorman's gamedrives, as well as enjoying a sundowner and take away fish and chips on their boat!).

My room has always been clean, tidy and well decorated. The views across the Marina are stunning and it is literally a ten minute walk down the hill, in one direction to town and in the other, to the beach.

There is always a good spread at breakfast -continental with cooked if you want and there are always muffins -my two favourites are Marianne's cheese puffs and her bran muffins.

I can't recommend this place enough. Whilst I've always been on my own, other guests that have stayed there at the same time as me include couples, parents of students from the local catering college and families and they have all seemed as happy and comfortable as I was.

I'm not a taking-photos of rooms person so v. sorry but the best I can offer is a view when i was working, from the terrace outside of my room. However I can vouch that the photos on their website are what you get in reality. Also, they have a really useful section on their website, the activities page, which has links to all the game parks, horse riding, golf and other things to do in the local area if you're planning to stay there for a while.
