Outstanding value for money. I felt welcome, safe, relaxed and comfortable. The room was so spacious I could do my workout in it, and the garden and interior public spaces were very inviting - so inviting that I actually *wanted* to sit down and work. Also the entire property was incredibly spacious and had high ceilings so it always felt...

Good day Thank you so much for your kind review. We hope to see you again in the near future.

It is a beautiful guest house, with a gorgeous garden and very friendly service. I did not give it 5 points because the room did not have a bathroom. It is a shared bathroom in the hallway. Apart from this point, it would be perfect.

Although we only stayed for one night, the service, cleanliness, and value for money was excellent. We would definitely stay there again. The guesthouse is close to all major shopping malls and restaurants, and it is easily accessible from the major highways. The guesthouse is also situated in a quite suburb.
