When I booked a room for my wife and I we requested a room with a King sized bed and were allocated Room 2 at a rate of R1380 for the night, including breakfast. In hindsight I realise that when we booked into the property we were given Room 1, which did not have as much space as Room 2, and also only had a Queen sized bed. This resulted in us having a bad nights sleep. The fact that the bed also had electric blankets in it also didn't help, as the wires under the sheets from these were most uncomfortable. We would suggest that the default should be NOT having the electric blankets in the bed, and only put them in if the guest(s) requests them. It was also annoying that the door between the room and the bathroom wouldn't close, as it knocked against the beside table. The parking at the establishment was good, although the drive to the parking area is narrow, and could be a problem for a large vehicle. The breakfast was very good and the property is in a nice quiet area.

Charming, secluded guesthouse with remnants of past attempts at holiness. Beautiful garden and pool, friendly and helpful staff. Nice unpretentious rooms, excellent WiFi. But why such a bland, unimaginative, stingy breakfast? Surely even the nuns would have had cereal and fruit? When did you last get a PicknPay yoghurt plonked on your table still in its container?! I wanted to pick up and munch one of the pears that had fallen wantonly on the terrace. Come to this haven of quiet and peace but skip the breakfast!

This must be one of the best guest houses in Worcester and surrounding area. We had a lovely room overlooking the swimming pool with all the amenities needed for a memorable stay. Safe parking, lovely breakfast and good quality beds and linen. The staff are well trained and very friendly. I will highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for holiday or business accommodation.

Overall a lovely experience: rooms were clean and comfortable, amenities were in good condition, and staff were always available in any concerns were had. The location itself is close to town, without being inside town, so you do not have the usual night noise. I booked on a high recommendation from a friend and will heartily give one myself.
