The room was small but sufficient for my requirements. I particularly liked the shower head and amazing smelling shower gel particularly seeing as i had spent 12 hours running in the mountain before i used it.
Pleasant, professional staff. I would definitely book here again.

The potential is there to be a great B&B but unfortunately this should be a two star B&B. Most certainly not worth three stars. Room were dirty on arrival. Dead insects against the wall. Toilet in the room is leaking - terrible smell in the room. Had to constantly ask for a towel, floor mat and toilet paper. We stayed for more than three days, I think my room was cleaned twice during that time. It is not covid friendly - staff adhere to covid protocol but the manager is walking around without a mask. People sitting in the lounge without masks also not approached to ask them to put on their masks. We noted that other guests had to share a bathroom, not the best option during the pandemic. Breakfast is enjoyable. They can spice it up with proper salt and pepper as well as some tomato sauce.

This guesthouse has the potential to be great. The location is perfect it just need a bit of magic. The staff kitchen and room were very friendly and always willing to assist. Rooms are private and it is an environment where one can relax.

Our room was upgraded, and was very comfortable and clean-smelling. Someone had turned off the hot water geyser, and it was NOT pleasant having a cold shower/wash in the morning, as we had no time to wait for it to warm up. We had access to kitchen equipment, which was NOT clean. Although the staff was friendly enough, breakfast was overcooked, and it didn't seem as though they knew what they were doing. A bit disappointing, as there is great potential.

This B&B advertised a room with a private bathroom but on arrival there was only a shared bathroom and not the private bathroom as booked. The accommodation agreed to a full refund and signed a document agreeing to this. I phoned a few days later to chase up refund and I was told it had already been done and I requested proof of refund to be sent on email. This never arrived. I have since phoned and left messages for the owner 4 times (he has never returned my calls) as it turns out I was lied to and this refund was never done. It is now 8 days later, still no refund or call back and I am told the owner is away until early next week so the refund cannot be done until then. The story keeps changing.
I would avoid this place and find somewhere else in the area that not only advertises correctly but has an idea on what customer service is.

Where to start? We paid by EFT as requested yet 4 days later the same payment went off the credit card. Phoning the numbers on the booking confirmation is useless had to consult Google to get hold of the manager regarding the double payment whom said it will be sorted upon arrival. We arrived with nobody at reception had to phone the manager who said he will be there in 10 minutes yet arrived 35 minutes later with another person whom immediately without greeting was on the attack saying we were late we said we would be there between 14:00 - 15:00 which we never did and mind you clock in is stated on the confirmation till 23:30. The bed was fine however the bathroom was not in the room but across the passage and not private but accessible to everyone. Breakfast was standard and as for the double payment it was said to be paid imminently. well it was not it was paid over less R70 which was apparently for a cleaning fee which once again according to documentation was relevant during COVID for sanitizing. A huge argument ensued between myself and a person called Charl whom insisted that i need to pay this cleaning fee and only after i spelled out to him with screen shots that i have paid the same amount x 2 was the R70 grudgingly refunded.
We have traveled a lot over the years and stayed in many places including the neighboring countries and never ever have I come across this kind of disrespectful treatment that we received here in our own backyard as PE is some 320km away and this from an establishment in an upmarket area of George. What was supposed to be a nice break away to the old car show is now an unpleasant memory. Never again will I stay at this establishment nor recommend it to anyone.

I was misinformed via the website, and was booked into a room with no bathroom and was not prepared to walk across the hallway. The next room the smell of paint was fresh and unpleasant with me having to sleep with open windows. The next room I had difficulty locking/opening the room door.

Day 2 I was shocked by the behaviour of the owner, who after knocking on his door, rattled off words and rushed past me, broke his sandals as he jumped into his car and sped away. No apology or explanation of his behaviour towards me. The chef/receptionist tried to cover up for him and would not share the details of the owner. I merely tried to access the lounge as I was getting ready to leave at 07H, after being told that breakfast is only served at 07h30.

I contacted someone at the Tourism Grading Council as in all my travels I have never been treated in this manner.

Very comfortable and luxurious rooms. Facilities are excellent quality and the service too. Beautiful, quiet and safe parking. Better than some 5 stars. Rooms have air-conditioning, netflix, comfortable beds and the host is passionate about the establishment. Would definitely recommend 👌 The spa is a treat 👌

Never received the room that I booked. The property is communal Living with a shared bathroom. I contacted the owner to sort out an arrangement, only to be told that it is Booking.com's fault that his property does not state it is communal in the advertisement. After following up with booking.com they confirmed that is not true at all, the owner has the ability to change the advertisement at any point.

The owner then stated that if we wanted to stay by ourselves and have a separate bathroom, then we would have to book and pay for the rest of the rooms in the communal house.

I landed up booking alternative accommodation as the owner had promised to refund me. After 2 months I still have not received any refund, the owner has gone as far as blocking my number in order to avoid any accountability on his end. Currently dealing with bookin.com in order to find a resolution. Not concerned about getting my money back, I just don't want any others booking at this place in future to have to go through this or have to deal with the arrogant owner.

We booked 2 rooms for the Wednesday night the 29th of Sept 2021. They moved their receiption to our units lounge, to the unit were we were suppose to sleep that night. The owner was very rude and arrogant with us. He said we were not allowed to lock the front door or the patio doors, he received people until 23:00 at night. They were so loud that we couldn'n sleep. When we complained to the owner he said to us that if we want to lock the doors then we would have to pay R3500 for the night. We would never stay there again or recommend the place ro any of our friends or family. We had booked to stay there on our return trip drom Cape Town, but afther that expierence we cancelled that booking. I feel that this is unacceptable as my elderly parents above age 65 snd 70 both diabetics were travelling with us . After a long day of traveling we just want a quite evening to relax.

Toilet not clean on arrival, door dirty, coffee pot not clean, glasses stained, grass not cut, remote not working. At breakfast you get the standard breakfast but not even asked how you would like your eggs or which bread you prefer. Very disappointing.
