Rooms, service and hospitality superb. Attention to detail is evident in rooms. Definitely recommend this establishment. Owners live on premises so hands on management. Prompt reply and correspondence when booking.

We bought and paid a reservation for January on Expedia, but the guest house was CLOSED, they don't operate anymore, and had not the decency to warn Expedia or it's customers. After a long drive, we ended up on their door but nobody answered. AVOID.

Dear RRod003 We were very concerned to read your review and apologise for the inconvenience caused. Unfortunately, we had a major medical emergency and had to rush a family member to hospital at 15:00. We had our phones on us the whole time, which did not reflect any missed calls. There was someone present at the guest house from 18:00...

What a lovely place to stay. My husband and I stayed over for 2 nights during a recent trip to PE. The owners are so friendly and attentive, they evens packed us a breakfast pack for the Sunday morning as we had to leave quite early. The room has everything you need and this is one of the tidiest guesthouses...

Lovely guest house. Very quaint and peaceful in a very convenient location. Pays great attention to little details in their services and facilities. Does not promise too much, but delivers excellently what it does promise. Definitely a home away from home.

Good location, very close to the airport (this is why we chose it), good hospitality, good breakfast, clean room but close to a well-travelled street, thus too noisy, not good for who, like me, is a light sleeper.

I spent a wonderful five nights as a guest as this really nice Guest house, James was a fantastic host and breakfast was wonderful too. Idyllic gardens, with such peaceful tranquility. Definitely worth stopping at, plus Joneses Restaurant isn't a bad choice for dinner, just mention the River Road and he'll make sure you have an enjoyable evening.

Thank you Fraser and Madeleine for such a wonderful time at your guest house. I came down with 2 other judges to judge the SA Showing Champs in October. It was so pleasant to come back home after a long, hot days judging to kick off our boots and be surrounded by tranquil and calm surroundings. Will most definitely advise...
