Honest truth here - we nearly didn't stay at 88 B v R because I though that, being in the centre of town, it might be noisy and cramped. Luckily, my fellow travellers overruled me and boy were they right to do so. Even before we arrived Huw and Zoe were being helpful, giving me info on hire cars, meerkat...

We happened upon this great little guest lodge as we were making our way along the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. Fantastic place, accessible to everything you want to see, the Cango Caves, the Wildlife Park and the Cango Ostrich Farm. The owners, Hue and Zoe, were absolutely wonderful hosts greeting us immediately at check in, and...

Only had the opportunity to stay 1 night in this guesthouse for our honeymoon. Huw and Zoe were very welcoming! Huw wasn't happy with me after Australia beat Wales in the rugby, but he sucked it up and still cooked me my breakfast! Haha. Great place to stay, very clean and good brekkie in the morning, central to everything! thanks...

We had only booked one night at this B&B but wished it had been more. Zoe and Huw were so helpful with local and area knowledge and recommendations, producing maps and directions if appropriate. Our room was exceptionally comfortable and every little detail it seemed had been thought of. Breakfast was superb and beautifully cooked by Huw. It was so...

Sparkling clean guest house, friendly owners, easy to find location and good breakfast. Sets a standard for many other guest houses to aspire to. Room was small but had everything we needed. Zoe and Huw were excellent hosts.

I will try to keep this review concise. So the summery first: this was the best hotel we stayed in during our whole stay in SA(1 month).Moreover, we are seasoned trackers by now, and it still feels it is one of our best stays ever. The hospitality of the owner couple was 10+ on a one to five scale. The...

Booked two nights here and had a great time. The rooms are a good size, very well equipped and tastefully decorated. Ours had a nice little terrace with the whole place topped off with a pool and plenty of greenery to provide shade and peace. Huw and Zoe were excellent hosts, full of advice, helpful tips and just plain friendly....

This is the perfect location for a traveler to stay if you want to have the Main Street restaurants, shops and places at your door. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The bathroom was well outfitted although there is no tub. Secure parking in back and gated. Lovely little porches outside. TV, WiFi available. What makes this inn...
