We stopped over at the Lighthouse for 1 night enroute from the Cape to Gauteng. The location in town is very central, and perfect for walking to/from the local restaurants. Our room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. Plenty of hot water in the shower and secure parking was provided for our vehicle. We will be back!

The guesthouse was perfect for what we were looking for, a stop over from the Cape to Johannesburg. We wanted a place to stay from where we could walk to a restaurant. We ate at Inni Kraal, was fabulous. The room was extremely clean and the beds had electric blankets which was very welcome as it was quite cold.

Everything was as described. Property was quite and pleasant. I can't complain in anyway. Parking behind the closed gate was secure and added a bit of peace to my sleep too. We would definitely stay there again.
