Special thank you to our host who went more than the extra mile to make our stay brilliant.This is the best B/B we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Views from the front bedrooms look over the sea.

Lovely guest house with very interesting mix of furniture and collectable items. Good breakfast with set offer and choice of cooked breakfast.
Owner - Theresa - has a big personality - very helpful with lots of local info and knowledge. Kindly booked a restaurant for our 1st night there- Burgundy restaurant- was OK but offer had changed (for the worse) since our visit a couple of years ago. More of a fast food offering now which wasn't really what we wanted.
New beaches discovered this time and well worth a visit.

Really nice rooms, good communal areas, nice pool, good breakfast, personal touch in welcome and checking satisfaction. Taxi advisable as a few km from town/restaurants but taxis very reasonably priced. The only small negative is that guests have to carry own bags up to rooms which is a little taxing with luggage for an extended trip and youth slipping into the distance!

This was the 2nd stop on our drive from Port Elizabeth and it didn't disappoint. We had a gorgeous room with fabulous wet room and, with the library and balcony right next door, it almost felt like we had a private suite.
Being slightly out of time was no hassle. We had a car but for dinner we chose to use a taxi which was cheap and no problem.
We also walked down to the spectacular grotto beach in 5 minutes.
Really felt like a home from home, from the honesty bar to the big comfy sofas.
Would love to go back.

We stayed in two rooms as a party of four adults, on the second leg of our journey and were greeted on arrival by the owner and shown to our rooms, which were first rate with everything we required, She had booked us in to a local Resteraunt for dinner, which could be cancelled if required, we took up the option and was not dissapointed. (You will need a Taxi) The guest house had everything you needed and of very good quality, spacious well appointed rooms swimming pool, with sun deck, beds, and umbrellas with a view over the ocean.
Breakfast was a small buffet, and full English cooked to order and excellent quality, I. Believe there were only five rooms so very quiet which was lovely, a full sized snooker table, books games, a home from home.
You can walk down to the beach (we did) but could be difficult for the less able bodied (we are all in our sixties)

I don't think you will be disappointed with this choice.
