    The owner manager Peter was friendly and made us welcome. This is a family business run by Peter and his wife Tina. Reasonably comfortable rooms at budget prices. A short drive from Addo Elephant National Park.

    A clean and comfortable B&B about 10 minutes drive from the center of East London. Breakfast was plentiful although a somewhat short on fruit. I needed some documents printed and scanned, which Tina took care of without any fuss.

    we really appreciated this guesthouse and especially the kindness of the hosts, Peter and Tina. The rooms, although not very big, offered all the necessary comfort and quieteness. Breakfast was very nice and prepared with care. If in the region we will definitely go back to this guesthouse.
