Relatively quiet guest house, the bit of road noise is off-set by the convenience of its location. Friendly and efficient staff assist you to quickly get settled in and also ensure you can get going safely the next morning

It was a wonderful stay, the room was very nice and the hosts were very helpful. The braai area made our stay even more perfect. We really enjoyed our time with them and we don't mind passing/staying by them again.

I had a great stay in this guest house. After driving 800km, that was what we needed. The guest house is so charming, our room was really beautiful and very comfy. Just loved it. The staff was very helpful and polite and breakfast was delicious.

The room was clean. The bedding (pillows and duvet inner) was very old. There was no window in the room to open - it had been sealed and barred shut (which I think is a health and safety violation). There is not enough parking for all the guests. You are instructed to park

Response from Joyce F, Owner at The 3 Chimneys Guest House
Responded 30 Jan 2017
I assume you were in room 2 or 4? I thought it would be obvious that the reason the windows (and pertaining to room 2 - door) were sealed was to protect you from the traffic noise? The rooms are aired daily with fans and the a/c serviced every quarter. Thank you for your feedback. Regarding duvet inner, this has been replaced. We do not sleep in the rooms so your feedback is invaluable thank you. Joyce

"What room you book won't matter because they'll put you where they please regardless of your booking."
"Twin room with the shower at the front of the guest house. There were trucks passing all night, but it didn't affect our sleep"
"Room opposite Pool, but other rooms are also great."
"Further back in the house away from the main street would be better"
"Think the outside rooms are better. There are no squeecky floors to annoy anyone and its close to the pool."
