What I appreciated very much about Tamarisk was the hospitality that the staff gave. The personal greeting and information, compliments to Lana for performing this task. After you enter your roomyou are truly perplexed by the possibilities that your room offer the shower attributes to it all i really enjoyed this clever idea, all set in the most beautifull garden. Not too mention the quiet & tranquil surroundings. In short, I enjoyed the short time I spent here very much, and I will definitely start to return here again for a longer period. Lana many thanks i really appreaciate the hospitality and hope to see you again in the near future.

The atmosphere was very welcoming. The hostess was very accommodating and attentive to my special dietary needs. She was very friendly and helpful as I was there to visit my husband in hospital after braking his neck.

Stay was terrible. Host is racist, I stayed for 7 days but my room was only cleaned twice. They say I may use the fridge but they throw my food out every morning. Bed not so comfortable also. Never recommend this place

We are extremely saddened by your false statement regarding racism and your experience during your stay with us, we take these situations very seriously indeed. As I am just started out as a B&B owner. The following policies were disregarded. 1. Late check-in, arriving 23:00 after initially agreeing 13:30. 2. Only paying guests may enter premises, you arrived with unregistered guests that were inebriated demanding access to a room booked for of only 2 people. External assistance (my partner) was required to assist with unruliness of you and your guests. 3. House cleaning service starts at 10:00. This was not possible as you were sleeping. 4. A small fridge is available in all rooms for the use if our guests, not the fridge in the private kitchen where the owner’s food was removed by you. 5. Empty /half eaten or full containers that is left in common areas for the whole day gets cleaned so that the social environment can be enjoyed by all our guests. As to the bed, we sorry that it was not to your comfort.
