This place was a highlight of our trip. We were made to feel so welcome and our room had a breathtaking view of the sea. It was spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and the bathroom had both a shower and a tub. We've never experienced a B+B where so much attention is paid to detail, as was particularly evident at breakfast....

We stayed here by accident, the place we had "booked" was deserted and locked up. What a lucky find, not only did they put us up, they found a room for our companions and booked us into a lovely restaurant, They turned what, after a five hour drive, had seemed a nightmare into a delightful stay. This is a very...

JB and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect and our room looked out over the ocean. We could leave our windows open and wake up to the sound of the crashing waves and bird life in the garden.

We stayed over for a night in December, and to be honest, I expected snooty, subtly racist hosts since it seems like a really posh area. However, our hosts were the complete opposite. Our hosts were just amazing. They made us feel welcome and right at home from the second we arrived. The house itself is beautiful with breathtaking views...

We stayed just one night at this beautiful B&B. The location is wonderful, with great ocean views. Very friendly and helpful owners who make you feel at home. Rooms are spacy, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was excellent. We wish we stayed longer at this lovely place. Highly recommended!

I was returning to Cape Town from a road trip to Oudtshoorn and taking the scenic route. George was too big a town for me to stay in and Mossel Bay didn't sound too appealing so I threw the dice and booked here as a compromise. The accommodation is purpose built as a B and B and the proprietors are...

Our stay was recommended by our friends who we were travelling with from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. JB and Adri are mine hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious although I only eat lightly when travelling. As a guesthouse owner in the UK I was inspired by the owners and if we should return then this...

This was a perfect stopover between Stanford and Addo. From the superb welcome from Mariaan to the excellent breakfast from Audrey and a fond goodbye from Jamie we felt completely honoured guests. Rooms are immaculate and the sound of the sea soothing. We cannot recommend this guesthouse too highly.
