We had a fabulous stay. The rooms were comfy and spacious and the location was very central. We could walk to all the best restaurants, and Buffelsdrift Game Lodge was less than 10 minutes drive. Highly recommend!

This place is 5 stars. Stayed for one night as I was visiting some places part of Garden Route. When I arrive I thought it's just a house, but it was beautiful. Perfect bedroom and bathroom clean and neat on first floor with a little garden with pool. Once you arrived they will ask what do you want for breakfast...
