After a hectic day of traveling the hills of KZN, this guesthouse was like an oasis. One is welcomed by the ringing of the cowbells and the sound of cows all round. You can go walking and look at their chapel and their mill. So relaxing. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff super friendly. The supper menu...

Great clean rooms with exceptional service from Christobel. The food in the restaurant is exquisite and the prices really very reasonable. nothing was too much effort when we asked for some "mods" to the meals to accomodate our two little ones. Definitely a spot to look into if you are stayign over in the area!

We had very cold weather during our stay in August but the staff did their best to make the stay as comfortable as they could. Heaters, fireplace, Electric blankets made us feel warm. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. They went the extra mile to assist us with our needs. Breakfast was really lovely. Pity the one night...

This past weekend we made our way to Creighton for a steam-train ride through the blooming aloes. The organisation of the Festival was really well done and you are allowed to pack a picnic basket or buy snacks and drinks on board. I will definitely be doing the festival again. As accommodation in Creighton is limited, we decided to stay...

My single room's accommodation was welcoming, homely, clean and very comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The setting of the retreat was relaxing and a walk around the property was interesting. The chapel and the old mill certainly have much history. The breakfast was hearty and the evening meal's selection was very good. A definite stop over again...

Our group of travellers were on a tour of selected 1880's Trappist mission stations. A bonus was to be accommodated on this former mission station, in delightfully adapted accommodation previously housing nuns of the Order of Precious Blood and members of the Trappist order. I stayed in a cottage named Hermitage 3, with twin beds en-suite which was luxuriously finished....

Situated near to Ixopo in Kwa Zulu Natal, the Guest House was previously a Trappist Monastery and offers a variety of accommodation choices from a fairly small bedroom (on suite) to very spacious accommodation called the “honeymoon suite”. The food was outstanding and varied and the service and attention we enjoyed was 100%. The buildings were built around 1890 and...

Wow - what a little Gem of a place, its like stepping back in time. The gardens are beautiful with flowers,butterflies and birds abundant. The food was delicious and well presented. I left feeling very relaxed which was a much needed treat. Thank you! Bernice

Unexpectedly charming, with a lot of history if you're interested. "Wild", indigenous and spacious gardens to walk around in, and beautiful old (Trappist Monk) buildings. The Superior rooms are very comfortable, although a little basic but with a good TV bouquet selection. Cell signal is almost non-existent, but that is probably a perk, and free Wifi is available. If there...
