The guest were very loud even through the sound proofing and they were not told by the staff to keep it down. I was on a business trip so I had work to do. I have been patronising this guesthouse for some time now but this time around it wasn't very pleasant.

We did not receive the gate code prior to arrival and had to make a phone call in order to gain access to the property. Not much help for international travellers without a phone. The room was pleasant and the bed comfortable. The property has no generator and the rooms have no night lights to cater for load shedding. The walkway from the parking area to the room was completely dark without any outside lights during load shedding. The breakfast was absolutely minimal.

Excellent staff and very friendly. Breakfast selection and preparation very good. Room very clean and beds comfortable. Security and safety - good area and appropriate security for the facility. Close to the areas that I want to access. Will be back again.

We had a girls night out sleep over. It was superb. Everything we needed was available and everything we wanted within reason was given. Safe, easy to locate and really comfortable. Happiness unlocked.

From the moment I arrived I was treated as if they've known me for a while. The room was lovely and warm, loadshedding did not affect my visit. Such friendly staff and accommodating to times as well. I would highly recommend them!

The ladies were friendly and ready to help. Thank you for a beautiful comfortable stay. The king size room was spacious and very clean. Would most definitely recommend it. The room had aircon too so we would stay warm, we loved that.

Only stayed for a night, but we were very impressed by this venue. Received a lovely warm welcome from the receptionist, the room was clean, comfortable and bright, with nice decor and fittings. I think we were the only ones staying, but the breakfast was great, a lot of choice and we'll cooked. Would happily recommend this venue!
