There was 5 of us staying here for one night as a stop over on our journey from Franschhoek. We were greeted by Erika who is lovely. We were able to check in early which was great. 3 of us stayed in a family room and then next door were the other two. The rooms were clean and nice flowers...

A truly lovely guest house, clean, modern room. Need a car/taxi to get to local amenities. Erika, the owner was so helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and provided gluten free bread though we had not requested this prior to booking. Fab breakfast and a glorious stay.

We arrived in Plett without a car at 10pm and Erika was kind enough to collect us and show us to our room even though it was so late, even giving us a quick lay of the land and a map. The room was lovely and very comfortable, the guesthouse was close to town (a quick 15min walk to Main...

A charming small guest house, ideal for couples. We had a room on first floor with a pleasant balcony than ran the length of the house overlooking the garden. The swimming pool was pristine and the room was comfortable and spotless. Breakfast is available if requested on check-in. However, we actually went into town and went to our favourite cafe.

Erika is an excellent hostess and made our stay very pleasant. She sourced gluten free bread for my husband and was very informative about the area. Our room was large with a balcony overlooking the pool. Would definitely recommend
