I was welcomed to a comfortable and clean room by lovely friendly staff members. The location is central and and easy to find with taxi's readily available in the vacinity. The great breakfast is the perfect way to start the day.

charming cottage, calm and clean huge room but what a decevant breakfast. Excellent location, this district is a treasure. I'll come back in Melville, and why not in "Life on 3rd" no more smile than necessary

Service very good and helpful. Breakfast good with fresh fruit salad. Special wishes like porridge have been satisfied. Tea bags and cookies/rusks are missing in the room. Unlikely for south african B&Bs. Bathrooms need to be renovated and parking situation is awful.

We enjoyed our stay. Very near and quiet. Breakfast was good and host and his team was friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back in August with our next trip. Thank you once again for making our stay good.
