A great place to stop over on a long trip. Rooms are comfortable you even have a little patio to sit and relax, and the hosts are friendly. There is a nice restaurant in walking distance if you in need of supper. Breakfast was delicious.

Excellent stopover on way to the Cape. Best Karoo lamb cutlet (chop) dinner we have had in a long time. One of the few B & B serving dinner out of season. It has retained its old world historic charm while the beds are superb....More
