Best place to go if you need quiet bonding time with your partner or family. The meals were superb, rooms clean, and the staff attitude excellent. It's a place I would go to at any given time. Beautiful

For a guesthouse, it's truly positioned perfectly between Menlyn Mall and Brooklyn Mall which makes life too easy to entertain your lady. The guesthouse staff are simply the best, welcoming and they go the extra mile!!! Room 3 is the best, the bed is huge the bath tub is big enough to fit two and the shower is glorious. The...

It was an amazing experiencee, the service exceed my expectations, the staff goes beyond the call of duty. The establishment Should invest in building a pool area so that guests should relax and unwind

I stayed here for one night. Very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding! Within walking distance from very nice restaurants as well. Service was very good. Cost was reasonable, in my view. Will go back and also recommend.

Had a very lovely time there. The two days were awesome. I was just disappointed by the restaurant though, the menu have limited courses and some of the food was not to be prepared. How ever, I love it and out of a 10, I totally give it a 7. Very nice.

I have stayed here about 7 or 8 times. You are always made to feel very welcome. The rooms are lovely as are the communal areas. Three little things I think they should have in the rooms are tissues, a dustbin in the room (not only in the bathroom) and a rusk or a biscuit to have with coffee. I...

Comfortable rooms with wonderful bed! Spacious. Nice outside area. Only complaint- plug for hairdryer and cellphones is not easy to reach. Breakfast food very nice but service very slow- we pre- ordered but it still took 30 min to serve.
