Stayed here for 2 nights after a few days in Cape Town, the moment we drove through the electric gates we were treated with a smile, instantly took back by the class and set up of the place.

The Pros: nice location if you like a bike ride or a long walk from the centre of town. The layout of the guesthouse was very charming, with a beautiful garden, pool and breakfast area. Attentive management and staff - Rodney was a gem - cycling us into town on the first night and making us a beautiful early morning...

The standard room is very well equipped with a nice view however superior rooms are more spacious and worth the extra. There is a very good selection for breakfast and freshly cooked. The swimming pool and sun beds are a bonus after a busy day.

For the more energetic, bicycles were on a free loan to guests. Our room, overlooking the garden to the front of...

To Timothy and the team, thank you for a wonderful stay. Beautiful rooms, perfect amenities, excellent location - quiet but still walking distance to town. Really enjoyed the personal touch including complimentary port and recommendations of where to go and what to see. We'll definitely be back.

It is a guesthouse with 8 or 9 rooms. We got a big room and a comfortable bed. Very helpful personal being to your help when you need them. Helped us with reservation and booking transport. The pool and the garden feels very relaxed. You can spend part of the day here with a good book and enjoying the weather.

We stayed here in November for 4 nights, using it as a base to explore the golf courses and wineries of Stellenbosch. There were 4 couples and we had a very pleasant stay.
