    My stay at Arum Place was above average overall. I appreciated the intimacy of the surroundings and the general calmness the premises and environment provides. It is generally quite pricey but not as much as most of the places within the same area.

    What a gem of a place. We'll definitely come back for another visit the next time we're in town. From the rooms to their breakfast, the owners really pay attention to the finer details.We really had a wonderful time.

    I'm afraid it's not my guest house - I was a traveller, but they took four of us plus luggage to Park Station for R400 if my memory serves me correctly.
