We had a great stay at the guesthouse and enjoyed the hospitality of Vina, More Blessings and Moses. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and was always cleaned nicely. The breakfast was a little limited but it was saved with a smile. There were plenty of shops and restaurants, everything is a walk away, which was lovely.

We arrived at 9pm at night so the place was locked up. We called the number on the gate & someone arrived to check us in. We were worried about the street parking as it is a busy part of Seapoint and saw that as an immediate issue. I did ask the hotel when booking if there was off-street parking...
