The location of this guest house is next to a river, the garden is spacious and beautiful. The room is spacious and well equipped. I highly recommend a visit to this tranquil location. It’s close to the N2 for easy access as well as restaurants. I highly recommended it.

This was a great find! Beautiful surroundings, comfy bed, spotlessly clean, lovely big room and bathroom. We loved that we could make our own breakfast too. Our host was super friendly and we loved the two dogs - so well behaved!

I stayed here with my groomsmen the evening before my wedding. I booked it on the proximity to the river for photos etc.. I was very pleasantly suprised at the size and modern approach in the rooms. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable..the furnishing is great and give you that modern contemporary feel..its is great! The well equipped braai area is close to the river where we had a great braai with the ambient sounds of the flowing river in the background. This establishment is neat and the owners was available whenever we needed her. She is very accommodating and ready to assist where needed. The 2 huge and beautiful dogs are friendly and very loving. They were a blast to have around! I will most definitely stay here again!

Loved our one night stay, next time we will definitely stay longer. Beautiful setting, lovely big rooms, spotlessly clean, beautiful pool - steps away from your door. Comfortable bed, lovely bathroom. We loved the breakfast option - to be able to prepare it ourself. Melani is a wonderful host. The beautiful dogs so well behaved.
