We spent 8 wonderful days in December 15 / January 2016 at Ar'deco Guesthouse. We stayed in the Chrysler room and it was nice and clean. All the staff, from the gardener to the manager were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast selection was good with a wide variety of options available. We will definitely be going back there.

The rooms were amazing - very spacious, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The room had a lovely roll top bath and big shower and air conditioning which kept us cool in the heat wave. I would definitely stay there again.

we had a 2-room suite in the newer part of the building - the living room had seating for only one person on a small narrow velvet couch - very strange and certainly not conducive to shared activities or leisure. The bedroom was fine. The shower had no hot water in the morning, and when we mentioned that to the...

We had a wonderful stay, beautiful rooms and very comfy bed, best one on our trip so far. Staff was very helpful and tried her best to get the Internet up and working after the rolling electrical outage. Breakfast was an an elegant affair with a beautifully set table and delicious food. Beautiful setting. Thanks for the memory.
