An unplanned car break down (bearing in mind I am from Durban) resulted in a late afternoon phone call to Chris and Tania pleading for a room to stay in. They were more than accommodating fitting me into a luxurious and spacious room with a lamb potjie for dinner ending my day on a high note. My car now sitting in the dealership in Umtata and me now awaiting the inevitable "this is the problem sir" for a day they allowed me to loiter (for lack of a better term) around the house for the day with the more than willing nature of offering the "do you need a lift anywhere" & "can we get you anything from the shops" hospitable attitude. They really did make my unfortunate event that much less unfortunate. I couldn't thank them enough for their hospitality but what I can do is (without a doubt) advise that this is the the place to stay in Umtata. Thank you again. Peter.

Great place. Beautiful garden and swimming pool. Nice bar. Owners were very nice. Feels like home away from home. If you love animals there are lots. Dogs, cats, koifish and African grays. Rooms are spacious.

This guest house appears to be operated by a couple in the construction business as the facility is over-built with rooms, leaving too little space for cars so that hey have to come and get your keys to move the cars around when someone needs to leave. In addition, there is quit a bit of stone-like material used throughout the rooms and outdoors. The walls were thin, making it too easy to hear other guests, and the hot water gave out. The breakfast was OK. Overall, the price seemed high relative to other guest houses, which were more comfortable and attractive.

great location, superb hosts, the best in Mthatha, thank you for accommodating our chaps at short notice. We highly recommend this B&B which will also cater for dinners. Business stop overs, or working in Mthatha, this is the place to be.

Very nice place to stay in Mthatha, everything is clean and tidy. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. The Only bad thing I can say is the parking that isn't great, there isn't enough for all the rooms and you end up parked in if you arrive earlier than the rest.
