Hosts Wendi & Gary made sure that we had a comfortable & enjoyable stay.
Rooms mere spacious clean and comfortable. I loved the fact that the safety deposit box and plugs for cell phone charges etc were visible and easy to access.
Our stay was topped off by a hearty breakfast. We would not hesitate to go back.

Wendi is an exceptional host offering a great experience and amazing hospitality that one can only expect from such a quaint little town such as Robertson.

We felt very welcome from the moment we had arrived.

I can highly recommend.

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood just a short drive or walk from downtown is the charming guest house Petals Place. From the moment you arrive, you feel welcomed into what can only be described as an oasis of calm and relaxation. The 1880s Victorian house has been lovingly restored, with elegant period details around every corner. Each guest room has a unique floral theme, with soft linens, plush towels and fresh flowers adding thoughtful touches.

After a restful night's sleep on the incredibly comfortable beds, start your day savoring Petals Place's hearty gourmet breakfast. The friendly innkeepers are always available to offer tips about exploring the area or simply engage in lively conversation over coffee.

Whether you seek a romantic weekend getaway or a base to discover this charming town, Petals Place envelopes you like a welcoming hug. Its sincere hospitality and conscientious attention to every detail combine to create a beautiful, rejuvenating retreat you'll want to return to again and again. I cannot recommend this guest house highly enough for anyone looking to relax, restore and create treasured memories.

Our room was very clean and comfortable and our host, Wendy, looked after us really well and couldn't have done more for us. She helped organise our wine safari and also left out plates and knives for us to have a snack supper on our return. Breakfasts were lively with lots of options

Thank you so much for your review and rating Charley. It was lovely to have you. Great to have somebody else drive you around the area so you can do the wine tasting which I know you enjoyed. There are a lot of activities in Robertson and we would love to have you stay again next time you are in the country.

A fantastic and grand guesthouse, comfortable and well appointed with huge rooms and the highest standards. The guest rooms are all fully equipped with mod cons like AC, Fridge, WiFi, TV, Coffee Station and en-suite bathrooms, but also feature a stunning selection of vintage furniture as well. Wendi and Gary are the ultimate hosts, and go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. It was too cold to use the outside pool facilities, but this is a great summer addition since our last stay there. We have stayed at Petal's Place before with very positive impressions, and if anything the 2 nights we have just spent there were even better than last time. We will definitely be back when in the area again.

A warm welcome from Wendi with an offer of sherry upon your arrival. Wendi expalins all the details of the room and the B&B. The room is very comfortable, clean and all the facilities that you need, fridge, kettle, tea, coffee and even rusks
A lovely shower to enjoy after a days work or outing.
A good choice of a breakfast menu and served to your requiremnets with the food being hot and delicious.
A big plus for the B&B is that during load shedding they have supplied a lamp which can be used and lets you have light in the room.
A really wonderful place to stay and highly recommend.

We spent a great deal of time in the swimming pool as the weather was very hot and we needed to cool down. It was a great relief to be able to spend time outdoors in and around the pool. Wendi and her husband, Gary, are very friendly and helpful.

Petals Place is in a beautiful old Robertson house, with many of the older attractive features maintained. It did however have updates in the right places like the bathroom. It is situated in a relatively quiet area, but still in close proximity to everything you might need in Robertson. Hostess was great and she served a great breakfast. Bed was a bit too hard for our liking, bur everything else was great.

Hi Rolf Your questions have only come through now to my laptop. I see that you have booked with us. Thank you for doing so. Our beds are queen size. We do have a verandah on the entrance side of the house. We have a barbeque area which is under cover which is a lovely area to sit and relax with the swimming pool close by. The two rooms are close to each other. We do have a water shortage in our area. We ask that guests be considerate
