The outside cottage was stunning, clean, and cozy and we had the loveliest stay here for our anniversary. The food was great in the mornings and Nina went out of her way to make sure that we were very well looked after. We will definitely return in the future.

Definitely the best B&B we've ever had the honour of staying at! The website photos are 100% accurate - it really is that beautiful! The attention to detail is out of this world! Derek & Nina are amazing hosts. Smilie is an absolute gem! Greeted us with a smile each morning and made the most delicious breakfast all 3 days! Our room was serviced every day! Really and truly an amazing place. 👌 Added to that, Derek & Nina recently opened their restaurant, 1910 The Old Forge! Beautifully decorated - all woodwork done by Derek himself, the most amazing atmosphere and absolutely delicious food lovingly prepared by Nina! Both the B&B and restaurant gets 10 out of 10 from us! Thanks so much for everything!

We actually got the room in the picture advertised. Perfection to detail ! Nina and Tapiwa could not have been more fantastic. Our breakfast was laid like a work of art....and tasted even better. 5 Star......Our room was so dreamy.....I never wanted to leave. The most comfortable bed I have slept in. From the outside it is like being miles out of South Africa in the middle of Italy or France....... Nina's garden is so beautiful.....Thank you both so much for a wonderful evening of pure luxury.

My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend in the Gardener's Cottage. The location was great and we could walk around, including to Ormonde Wine Estate up the road. The host was very friendly, helpful and welcoming, as were the big friendly dog and two beautiful cats. The room itself was comfortable and cosy and had a TV with DSTV. The best part about our stay was the delicious breakfasts. It was a surprise each morning and both mornings were two courses! Our only regret is not trying out the home cooked dinner which we will do on our return.

We stayed only one night at Maison de L'Amour been en route to Cape Town but what a delightful treat! Nina is a superb hostess supported by Smilie, the Cook and Maggie, the Housekeeper. The garden is a delight of found objet, bursting pink bougainvilleas and the scent and sounds of the Boland. The Breakfast Smilie prepared and served will remain the best we have ever had for a long time.

I Had a unique experience at this charming place. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the breakfast was one of a kind and the hosts were so hospitable and friendly - loved every minute of my stay. Breakfast was served with heart shaped toasts and an elegant French feel. The staff were all dressed up and table was set so beautifully that you felt like you were in a romantic hideaway. everything was fresh, clean and magnificently presented.

We travelled through 30 towns during March 2017 and this particular guesthouse stole our hearts. What a wonderful host and staff. Darling should be proud to have an establishment like this. Breakfast, every day, was a surprise. Attention to detail is done with so much flair. We felt like we were visiting France. Romantic and classy ambience. The host is very attuned to tourist needs and made a point of promoting Darling. This is what travel is about. I can truly recommend this establishment. An amazing stay and we will return in due course.

Everything of our stay and the accommodation was extraordinary. Very classy, romantic and feels a bit like oversees - like visiting France or somewhere with there often nice French music in the background. Their food was the best we've eaten in a very long time. Would definitely recommend!
