Stayed at the B&B (room 3) for 3 nights while on a business trip. Stairs to the room were a bit steep and needed to be carefully negotiated at night and when wet. Nice size room with 2 single beds. The establishment is neatly kept and maintained. TV is very noisy when you switch it on so I switched the... More

Thank you for your hospitality over Christmas it was great staying at your place. It was a great stay and thanks for allowing my husband to work in your dining area. The tranquility and the garden is really relaxing. It was home away from home for us.

Hi Kevin, thank you very much for your review.' My apology once more for the water crisis .It was indeed a screw on the element of the geyser that rusted and broke off causing water to trip the geyser.Sorry for the inconvenience. It was wonderful to have you here and trust we will see you soon again. Kind regards, Pollie More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom/2bathroom cottage at the rear of the property. We stayed for 1 night in early January (hottest and muggiest time of year). There were no fans or aircon in the rooms. We couldn't sleep with windows open as gardens were quite overgrown and Mosquitos were in abundance. One bathroom had a leaky toilet which made... More

We both found the accommodation to be clean, spacious, well furnished and well equipped for a self-catering stay. The gardens and swimming pool are beautifully maintained, and the dining/breakfast room bright and welcoming. All the staff were extremely friendly... More

The exterior of the B&B is outstanding with manicured lawns and gardens. The room we were given was not the best- built underground next to the pool. However it was large, clean & comfortable. The furnishings wre a little outdated and need upgrading. We were the only guests for most of the 4 nights we stayed there- apart from the... More
