Clean and comfortable. Self catering. Prepare your food in a lovely large kitchen. Value for money. Walking distance to a very nice pub/restaurant. Don't get too excited about the swimming pool!. Still well worth the money.

The guesthouse is nice, we got a warm reception from the owner. It was neat and spacious. It is everything you look for when you drive past or just staying for a few days in kimberley. The only problem is they don't serve breakfast. But...More

Hi. We are very sorry that you did not get the room you had expected. We moved you to one of the Studio Rooms (which are fully self-contained self-catering with private entrance) because we thought it would suit you better for a stay lasting several...More
