Booked the wrong date! My own fault but would have been helpful if the establishment made contact/enquired why we did not arrive. Only realised my mistake when I reveived a mail a week later to rate our stay !! Called 5he guest house immediately to enquire about correcting the date on the booking ...

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.
