During our overnight stay this venue was catering for a large group of happy young people so we chose to miss the evening dinner. The breakfast next morning was great, and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Definitely a popular spot !

This guesthouse has lovely big rooms. The rooms are very neat and have everything you need. The breakfast is enjoyed sitting on the stoep, is very tasty, specially prepared with very good cappuccino. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone. The only feedback I can provide that can be considered for improvement is the orange juice at breakfast. It is too sweet and not proper orange juice.

It was not our first time, but this time we took friends with us. The same friendly atmosphere welcomed us back.
We felt especially welcome when late on our return our warm blankets was switched on.
It was like coming home

We've stayed with Bauhenia before and will return again. The rooms and very comfortable and the service is excellent. Breakfast was a treat, and we got a late check-out without any problems, and could even stay on longer to work on the patio, with free internet and coffee, while waiting for all our meetings to finish

A wonderful place to stay. Literally feels like a home away from home. They were extremely accomadating with their dinners and I am certain a gained weight from the size of the portions and the desserts served every evening. Beautiful comfortable rooms. Great hospitality. You are treated like royalty.

A lovely , well maintained Guesthouse, but the outside room/ cottage was very poor in expectations. Very cold in Potch in winter, the room was inadequately warmed with its very high ceilings and one small panel heater on the wall. It was too close to the road, and every time a vehicle passed there was noise and lights disturbing one. The breakfast and friendly staff were pluses.

Firstly , the room was not what we expected and definitely not what was on the website !!!
No kitchen at all as indicated on the website- just a freezer and kettle.
Room very small for 3 people.
Mosquito's was a real problem.
Rats at night running on the ceiling kept us up all night !!!
Breakfast was bad with NO option for us the choose from - you just got served and it was not good at all.

Response from Jayde Scheepers, Owner at Bauhenia Guesthouse
Responded 25 Mar 2022
Thank you for your time taken to review our Guesthouse and to bring your concerns to our attention. My apology for only responding now, but we have been so blessed with full occupancy. Firstly we would like to clarify that you called at 10:00 and asked if you could check- in at 11:00 as you wanted to store your daughter's fridge and some boxes in the room. I explained that our check -in time is at 14:00 but that we will do our utmost best to accommodate your request. I explained that the room that you originally booked would not be ready on such short notice but that we could place you in another room of the same size and capacity (The room is 30 sqm, and the bathroom a separate 8 sqm) . Our website confirms that our rooms have a "kitchenette consisting of small fridge and tea and coffee tray", we are not a self-catering facility, as we operate as a bed and breakfast facility. You sent me a message about the mosquito's asking if we could provide a mosquito repellent plug, which we did (instead of the repellent spray that is provided in the room) . In the morning I asked you how you slept and asked if the plug worked and you said it worked well. You mentioned "rats" in the morning and we immediately contracted Pest Control to assess the issue, however they could not find any signs of rat activity but treated it anyway. I need to mention that the room you were in, was fully booked for 3 weeks prior to your stay, and thus far we have not had any complaints regarding rats. I asked all our other guests that stayed during the same period as well, they did not hear anything. We serve a Full English breakfast, with a yogurt, muesli and fruit stack. Unlimited coffee, cappuccino, tea and fruit juice comes standard with the breakfast. You arrived 30 minutes early for your breakfast reservation, and again we did our best to serve you timely and courteously. Kind regards, Jayde Scheepers

I would highly recommend Bauhenia Guesthouse. From the minute I entered the beautiful historical property, I was welcomed with warmth and friendliness. From the gardens, to my amazing room, to the delicious meals, the all around clean and professionally run Guesthouse was an absolute treat. I Loved every moment and will definitely book in again. Thank you to Jayde and Chantal. It was awesome.

It was so cozy to stay here. The room was large and bathroom felt like home. So tidy and clean. We loved the staff so wonderful !!!! We didn’t have a car, so the owners went out of their way to help us as much as possible! The conversions were also memorable. Thank you ladies for everything! We highly recommend!!!!
