We had a great stay at La Cruz Guest House.
The host was amazing, made us feel at home.
We spent 5 days at the guest house, it would have been really nice if they changed the breakfast menu on certain days.
Overall our stay was great and the rooms are 5 Star. would be even better if they included microwaves.

Dear Nosipho Thank you for your positive review and for choosing La Cruz Guest House. Next time, tell us what you want for breakfast and we will make it for you. The microwave and cutlery was available in the kitchen for you to use, as you did. Unfortunately we don't allow eating in the rooms, therefor the rooms are not equipped with microwaves. Regards

The room was a bit small, but it had an en suite. The electric blanket and rotating heater were nice bonuses. There is a pool on the property, but it was unsurprisingly unmaintained during winter. Also there's no lawn furniture so a pool party was out of the question anyways.

The property manager was missing when I arrived for check-in. Had to wait an inconvenient 45 mins to gain access to my room. Hopefully this was an isolated event.

Please don't lock the door leading from the rooms to the front door. Had to get something from my car only to find the door locked.
Besides this my stay was very pleasant and I'm looking forward to my next stay!
Thank you!

The place is peaceful and clean you get a peace of mind ,I wished to stay longer but circumstances didn't allow me. For a small place like it I didn't think i will find calmness and beauty. The is a nice garden with a braai place ,the rooms I dont regret paying for that amount a night .

I stayed at La Cruz on a business trip. I wasn't at the guesthouse much, but it was clean and neat. I had everything I needed except for the fact that that the shower didn't work which meant that I had to shower at the room next door on the morning I left. Otherwise things were fine.

My stay at La Cruz was wonderful. Annalien who hosted me while Estelle was away, was warm and super friendly. La Cruz is most definitely my top choice for staying in Welkom.

The only small qualm I had, is that I was really looking forward to a long warm bath after my drive, but had to settle for a shower instead. Either way, i had a good night.

I stayed at La Cruz Guest House during a business trip this past week and the service I received from Linda was phenomenal. She was so accommodating when I arrived earlier than expected to check-in. My room, bathroom and study were really spacious. I also appreciated that my room was pre-heated as it was really cold in Grahamstown. The food provided was delicious, from Breakfast to Dinner. Sitting at the fireplace in the communal spacious lounge area was exactly what was needed after a long day. La Cruz Guest House certainly lives up to their standard as a luxury guest house with a 'homely' feel. I will definitely be staying there again.
