Lovely place in a good location, lovely and friendly staff. Our room was a good size, clean.
The negatives: Google map for the second property location needs an update. There is one light for the bedroom, no connection for the bedside lamp. There were cockroaches coming behind curtains went behind the wardrobe, there are still old holes above curtains, I think they're for the old curtains. The shower needs maintenance (shower door handle broken, shower drain is not nice finish, tiles has shape edges and freshen up grout and ceilings. Changing linen should have some note reminding all guests about climate change/global warming, to change linen when is necessary, and have a recycling bin in the room.
I can recommend this place to a friend.

The place is exactly as in the pictures, the room was nice and cozy with a bar fridge,, microwave oven and kettle. The bed and pillows were comfortable, DSTV Compact channels were a bonus as we managed to catch some sports due to the rainy and cold weather outside. We had the luxury of not experiencing any load shedding as the guest house had backup generator which you could hardly hear. The receptionist is a darling. We are definitely coming back.

Shoes Guest House is a nice guest house in a nice part of Mthatha. There is electric fencing. There is the option of breakfast in the morning. Parking space is plentiful. The available Wi-Fi was unfortunately very slow.

The lady in the reception is very friendly and helpful. She's calls on the day to check if you still coming. The guest house is clean, beautiful and a good value for money. What we see on the internet is really what it is in real life. I don't really like the location though.
