    An absolute gem!!! We had a wonderful stay here and wished we'd stayed longer than one night. Incredible views, great service, wonderful breakfast, short walk to the village centre and cake to die for!

    Was just what we were looking - out of the hustle and bustle of Cape Town Little home touches were amazing and really enjoyed the balcony and awesome view. Had a fabulous breakfast the following morning and loved the antique touches.
