Wonderfully run establishment full of a colourful history. Very comfortable large on-suite rooms with aircon and amenities. Exceptional breakfast served out of a magnificent farm style kitchen. Everything you can ask for whether you are passing through or staying for a while to explore the beautiful surroundings.

This will be our second stay over at this very comfortable guesthouse. The position in town is convenient and you can walk to restaurants, coffee shops and places of interest. The guesthouse is full of items / photos / paintings and statues, most of which have stories behind them. Allow time for your hostess to entertain you! The bedrooms are spacious, ensuite, air-conditioned, comfortable and well appointed. What's not to like? Reinette your hostess will ensure a memorable stay.🤙
