We stayed with Elaine for two nights and were very pleasantly suprised. Having booked on the internet we were not sure what to expect but Goblins Creek manor house is excellent. We had a large room with very comfortable four poster bed and a roll top bath adjacent. The pool was clean and refreshing and the breakfasts excellent. Altogether an excellent place to stop over.

I wanted to get away from it all and chill and Goblin's Creek was exactly what I needed. Having a hot bath felt so decadent and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I might have converted the owners to geocaching - hope to find a cache here the next time I am in the area! :)

If you are looking for a place to relax this will be the place to go to. There are no restaurants close by. We went with my parents and played games in the evening because you do not have a tv in your room or tea or coffee and the tv in the living area has SABC 1,2,3 and ETV.
The breakfast is nothing wonderful but the bed and the bath makes up for it.

The hostess, Elaine, really looked after us well and made us feel at home.

The rooms were clean and well appointed and well up there in the 4 star range. We got a 4 poster bed with rose petals laid out and a really deep bath in the room. Nice! Mattress was good and firm (felt pretty new) and the bedding was crisp and clean. The pillows were synthetic and a little on the hard side - we would have preferred down pillows, but we still got a good night's sleep.

Goblin's Creek is close enough to everything that you would want to see in the St Helena Bay area so it would get 5/5 for location, however it is in a bit of a run-down area and the house itself isn't an architectural masterpiece, but you know what, it didn't matter at all because Goblins has a really great garden and you feel like you are in a mini-oasis with all the greenery and animal life in the garden. The area may be a bit run-down but it was really quiet and clean and we felt 100% safe and secure.

The place is really well priced. REALLY well priced! 2 to 3 star pricing for 4 star facilities. For this reason alone I would go back if I was ever in the area.

My husband and I spent a night here after attending AfrikaBurn and absolutely loved this place. The hosts, Brett & Rosie are animal rescuers so there are plenty of animals around. Even a little skunk named Petal. There is also a treehouse and other little hideaways around the property. Our bed was super comfortable, hot shower, good internet, coffee. Loved the hosts and the experience, highly recommend.

Hi Guys, thank you so much for your stunning revue, don’t think we paid you enough, haha. So very glad that we could be a part in making your African adventure a more memorable one, it was a pleasure meeting you both and would love to see you again when you next return to South Africa, by then we should have the “Goblin Wildlife Sanctuary” up and running, with lots of new little beasties to befriend. Lol to you both, Brett and Rosi

Very impressed with all that Goblin's Creed had to offer. Beautiful atmosphere, and ambience. The owners are exceptionally warm and friendly. The weekend's stay was as if it was home from home. Would gladly visit there again.

We enjoyed our weekend away at Goblin's creek. It was a good base for flower viewing and we were able to get a good night's sleep. The hosts were warm and friendly. The communal kitchen was a bonus, although it would still be nice to have a kettle in the room.

I stayed over for 1 night at Goblin´s Creek, but, I enjoyed the experience! Starting with Brett and Josie the owners, who are the friendliest and welcoming people ever, I felt welcomed and at home instantly!
At Goblins Creek, you will enjoy, home cooked meals, clean and comfortable rooms, tranquility and friendship all-in-one!
I recommend Goblins Creek 100%, to all visiting St.Helena Bay.

What a lovely short stay i had with them, very romantic setup, petals on the bed & bath. Very neat. Lovely breakfast. I had a four poster bed with mosquito nets, the bath was the best, and the bed huge. Pity i could not stay longer to enjoy it to the fullest.
