The owner, Damian, was very friendly and welcoming and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. The house itself is a charming, old Cape...

This is a cosy place with great accommodation. The staff is lovely and very friendly. Some of the best breakfast buffets I ever experienced (and I travelled A LOT). Really very exceptional breakfast with lots of TLC. Bar (self-service) is well stocked. Can only recommend.

This Guesthouse is an excellent base to explore the winelands. A very warm welcome from our hosts as well as excellent accommodation and a very well stocked honesty bar added to an enjoyable stay and the breakfast was great especially the great selection of bakery items all fresh each morning. A very strong recommendation for this establishment

Didn't realise the accommodation was more suited for family than friends due to shower/kitchen & sitting room facilities all in one. Shower & toilet doors should be able to close more effectively than just sliding across. Lovely pool area & outside space next to the cottage.

Dear Raelene, Thank you for writing us a review and compliments about our pool area. We understand your remarks about the cottage but as you've booked via booking.com we feel it's unfair to say that you did not realize the room was more suitable for families than friends. The name of the room on booking.com is Family cottage. We hope...

  • This is what our room liked like on our return - AWFUL
