In need of some care and attention. The guest house was not particularly clean & the pool was unusable due to dirty water & no filtration. The location is not great, and we would not book this place again.

We had a very pleasant greeting and our room was very comfortable. However, after a very successful and nice, hot breakfast on the first morning, it began to deteriorate. One morning we had to wait a very long time for our cooked food, the toast didn't arrive until half way through and the food was nearly cold, I also had...

We stayed here for the last night of our holiday and if we went back to South Africa we would stay for longer. The house is in a great location and the room we had was really lovely and so was the breakfast. However, the best thing about this place is the staff who were so helpful and really couldnt...

Superb accommodation in a wonderful location. Spotlessly clean in every room. The breakfast which we took on the veranda overlooking the City was a very generous buffet choice and the hot breakfast superbly cooked and presented. A very nice place to stay.

We stayed in the main house/ mansion and it was absolutely beautiful. Nice large room and bathroom. Only complaint would be there could have been better lighting on the bedroom area. The breakfasts were delicious. Made fresh to your order and there was a very nice selection. Location was nice just wished it was closer to the waterfront. Would I...
