Very well located. Very comfortable and clean. Breakfast delicious and well prepared. Owner is on the property and nothing is to big for them to solve. I can really recommend this guesthouse. Recently renovated.

I stayed in Room 1, which is beautifully furnished and very large, with the most beautiful panoramic window and view. The breakfasts were delicious and the guest house is kept spotless. If I return to East London for Ironman 70.3, I would stay here again.

The room was great and spacious. The breakfast was a requested. Beautiful scenic view of the Gonubi River. You get a sense tat you have booked the entire house with two beautiful lounges facing the lovely, lush green garden.

Our family stayed at this guest house over the 2014 Christmas period for six days from the 21st. The guest house itself is beautifully furnished and decorated. The pool overlooks the Gqunube (Gonubie) river valley.

As much as this place looks absolutely amazing, it was the personal touches that seemed to be left out. There was no wi-fi, even though they gave us a code to use, nothing worked. There were no adaptors for foreign plugs and after being told to make ourselves at home, we went looking for an adaptor, but there wasn't one...

This is probably the guesthouse with the best view I have ever stayed in. The accommodation and breakfast deserves 5 stars. The peak hour traffic is currently a problem, but once the main road from the N2 to Gonubie has been rebuilt, the 10 minute drive from East London will be more than worth it.
