Very nice and quiet place, the rooms are clean and being cleaned every morning. The wifi works 100%. Breakfasts are good quality, staff are friendly. It would be nice if there was a shuttle service included. Overall, very pleasant stay.

I truly enjoyed my stay in this guest house in Linden! The property is a lovely garden and cottage style house, and my room was quite comfortable. The staff are one of the greatest assets, as they are extremely friendly and looking after you. Breakfast was tasty. There seems to be a guest kitchen if you want to cook for yourself, but the neighborhood is quiet and safe and I had no trouble walking a bit over a block to restaurants. The art is lovely, with a clear Christian theme. I had some issues with wifi but with such a short stay, didn't ask for help clearing it up, and the lack of a/c was not an issue. The one negative is that I found my walls a bit thin. Fortunately the place was a bit empty so it wasn't too big of a problem. All in all, for the price paid, it was an excellent bargain and I'm very happy I chose it!

That Magenta Room No. 10! Was in love with it, sadly it's no more there as they did some paint job 😢 . In fact when we came last week some construction job is still going on, no wonder lapa area is a bit untidy and dusty. Anyway, the rooms are still looking pretty (tho all the colourful ones are completely gone), clean and neat. The house is very beautiful and big, nicely decorated with colourful sofas and wooden furnitures - where  those beautiful paintings  made by the owner herself, Susan Berry. She's a very talented artist I must say 😊. In short, Staying there is like attending gallery at the same time. What a nice feelings, indeed... 💞
