The first thing we noticed when we entered the hotel grounds was the peace & quiet amidst the greenery not very far from a city. Despite the lack of rain, hotel grounds have been beautifully maintained. The elongated bluish pool was a nice addition to the green landscape. It was obvious that a lot of love & care has gone...

Thoughtfulness and attention to detail are what makes Ambience Inn, and its delightful hosts, such a pleasure to visit. The place has a charming combination of old-world Morocco and fresh mid-century sleekness to it, and the lush gardens immediately transport you into a haven of peace and relaxation. My room had every amenity I could want and more; the breakfast...

Issy and Hannes , Thank you for the warm and friendly welcome upon arrival. You made us feel very special and welcome at your beautiful home. The outdoor shower was a great way of relaxing after a long day of travelling. Each unit has its own hammock and I fell asleep immediately after nestling into mine. The garden reminded me...

I was greeted with a fruit juice when I arrived at this magnificent garden. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed and are spotless. Featured is 2 showers with a double shower outside behind a perfectly private walled garden! There is plenty of coffee and tea to hand with fresh milk. An enjoyable and highly recommended place to stay.

This guesthouse is situated in a safe and secluded area, with a lovely garden. It offers silence and serenity and rooms that are both comfortable and lovely to look at. In front of the rooms runs a wide verandah with tables and chairs. The hosts are welcoming and accommodating.

I stayed here with my elderly mother for 4 nights. We arrived in pouring rain, and before we could get out of the car, Issy and Hannes were there with umbrellas and all. During our stay, they did everything to make sure we had all we needed. Perfect room, lovely garden and pool, and delicious breakfast. Highly recommended!

Ambience Inn gives you everything you need to charge your own batteries. If it is at the end of the working day, or for a break away, you will experience comfort and peace. The garden is pure joy, the service and breakfast excellent. A well managed guest house, a good choice!
