Don't do it. Don't book this B&B without doing a proper search. Check all the reviews beforehand. There are very limited photos on their website. It is very old fashioned and needs a real update. Our stay was very dissapointing.

Wendy the host was patient and efficient with our booking. She was accommodating when I asked if we could check in earlier. The place is hidden between lovely gardens and is spacious and peaceful but that's where the good ends. Our room was decorated in outdated orange and browns. The curtains are dirty and tacky as is the brown night frill, pillows and some sort of beige brown bedspread from the 60s! Brown towels are a no no! And there are no mats or towels for the floor so when you get out of the shower you have step on the tiles with wet feet. The beds (two single next to each other made up as a king) was uncomfortable as the one was higher than the other and the centre felt like there was a piece of wood in between. In this heat and area, no fan or aircon ~ I couldn't sleep because of the heat and the sound the fridge makes. The TV is an old tiny tiny TV with only SABC channels. Finally the breakfast was just horrible. A huge potato patty with one hard fried egg (we weren't asked how we wanted them), one mini dry sausage and what looked like a rasher of bacon that was shared between my husband and I with tomoto and corn from a can. The sauces on the table were as old as all the dusty ornaments and cloths. This place needs a makeover. I will not recommend it for the price!

i had the worst experience of my life, the place is very creepy, outdated rooms with dirty bedding. The owner is a very rude old Lady called Wendy, that slammed my car door and showed me the gate after I asked for my money back (which she refused to give back), cause I couldn't sleep in that terrible excuse of a guesthouse. Getting scammed by an old woman like that, what has this World turned to? The travelling regulators should close that place down immediately

This is a gentle place. Non luxurious but very adequate. Our room was neat but perhaps in need of some care. The room had the basic necessities and was in a lovely relaxing place. I was a bit nervous of the isolation of the place especially when we returned in the evening. Breakfast was good and the price was very reasonable

This farm is a stones throw from town and you feel like you are truly in the country. It is so peaceful and quiet. The cottages are very cute but nothing to write home about, pretty average, but a warm place to put your head down! The hostess was excellent and very helpful. Thank you
