Reviewed 4 April 2017

What a pleasure it was to meet Beau and Imelda. They were wonderful hosts - nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious and comfortable with plenty of cupboard space and the breakfast was well worth the extra money. My choice of B&B proved to be a great one.

Home away from home overnight with personalised, caring and attentive host and hostess. Attention to finest detail, more than hostess support in many unexpected ways. Will certainly consider as sleepover in future.

Warmest welcome with tea, coffee and home baked cake. Feels like you're visiting at a family home. Very comfortable rooms and walking distance from many attractions and restaurants. Imelda is a very informative host. Just spent a night but would consider staying longer if driving past again.

It was great to have the 3 vets simultaneously with us and one all the way from Austria! Bless you for the very complimentary review. For us it is important to have a "homely business" where guests can be at ease, at peace and relax.... Warmest regards to the 3 of you.

Bless you for the lovely review Mike! When our guests feel at home and enjoy their stay, it is the biggest compliment to us. We thoroughly enjoyed your company, as well as Pam's, and can only trust that you will be back one day. Just the very best for the 2 of you.

Graaff-Reinet is a very small town, but very charming. We were received by Imelda who was great! She explained all the tourist things that you can do at the town and suggested restaurants and even made our reservation! The room was very cozy, the shower is great. We really liked our stay even if it was for only one night....

We really appreciate your feedback on your stay Alice. I agree with you that we have a charming town with quite a bit to do - impossible to experience everything in one day, so you will have to come back for at least 2 days! Just the very best for both of you.

The Beau and I, eponymously named by the owner couple, is well situated just of the main road through town, close to all amenities. The hostess is extremely kind, welcoming and helpful and at pains to go that extra mile to make a difference no matter what the time. She welcomed us and went through a comprehensive introduction/guide to the...

Great value for money. The hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home and to tell us all about the tourist attractions nearby. The rooms were very neat and tidy and the food provided was delicious!

Imelda is so friendly and welcoming and can't do enough for you. She gave us lots of information about the town and surrounding areas. Just like home from home. We had the choice of a delicious cooked breakfast or continental.

Stayed here for 1 night and had a lovely warm reception from Imelda and she welcomed us with tea and cake. She was also very helpful and gave us lots of information about the area and she even rang local restaurant to book us a table. Very nice cooked breakfast. Well recommended.
