This guesthouse in the heart of Potchefstroom and very close to the University is a real gem. Accommodation is beautiful and the service outstanding. Hosts went out of their way to ensure that we felt welcome and special.

I had quite a long stay at Ma Cachette and the staff were very friendly and helpful - especially accommodating in providing some variety to the standard breakfast fare. While the room was very comfortable, the bathroom and common areas could do with some updating. There’s not much choice of TV channels but who wants to watch anything on an old fashioned tv anyway?

Very charming, with a country Tuscan feel. They have family rooms (that's what we had) that provide privacy. Close to shops, reasonably priced and a very friendly staff. Free wifi. You won't be disappointed!

Why does B & B's, rated so highly , forget that all females needs a hairdryer and if they do not have a hairdryer, at least a proper plug at a mirror to use your own?
Only sachets with de-caff coffee! No proper milk only Cremora!
Breakfast was poor. No cut fruit, yogurt was warm and food on a hot tray and looked very un - attractive indeed. No one to ask if we had a special need maybe?
We were referred there by Potch residence, but I do not think it was worth it.

The beautiful interior, antique atmosphere gives you a warm welcome when you enter the guest house. The receptionist was friendly and introduced me to the place and my room. The room is spacious with beautiful interior. The bathroom has a shower with fresh towels.
In the room a welcome cherry was available. In the cupboard a small bar fridge with a bottle of water. On the coffee tray, only Ricoffy and creamora were available, disappointed for a four-star guest house. No fresh milk in the fridge.

Overall the bedding looks good, but there was no flat sheet on the bed. It was hot; the aircon didn't work effectively, and the ceiling fan worked over time.

Breakfast was disappointing, no plain yoghurt available, fresh fruit small variety and with slices of watermelon. Further cerials and only bacon and eggs with toast.

Day 2 the breakfast was much better, plain yoghurt, but no fruit, I have to ask for fruit, and only watermelon slices were available. It was a full English breakfast. Well done.

The shampoo and shower gel were not replaced the second day — little disappointed.

The owner was excellent and friendly.

Ma Cachette is comfortable and well-equipped. The management / owners are professional and friendly and it certainly is a good option if looking for a place to stay in Potchefstroom. I felt though that it missed out on a few points. I had female colleagues with me who pointed out that there weren't hair dryers in the rooms. I missed having available tissues. The TV stations available were very disappointing after a long day out with the noticeable absence of an international news channel - CNN or BBC. We were all a bit disappointed with the breakfasts - especially the lack of an appealing fresh fruit platter. On one evening we ordered dinner in the guest house and it was very pleasant.

We stayed at Ma Cachette for just one night and found it quiet and quaint and met all of our needs. The B&B is pleasant, and I loved some of the conveniences at the place. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The carafes of sherry and glasses spread throughout was a nice touch. The beds were comfortable and rooms were nice and warm. I do agree with other reviewers on the breakfast - the food itself was fine, but was left out in a serve yourself buffet and the plates were ice cold (not on a warmer). Scrambled eggs don't stay warm very long on cold plates. All that being said, I would go back there again in a heartbeat. It was exactly where we wanted to be and we felt safe and cared for. The little things we can overlook for the bigger things.

I have stayed several Times' at Ma Cachette and the service and hospitality is great. We even got to borrow a car. This time. Anything is possible with a smile. Personal large rooms with bathroom en suite. Walking distance to the Bult and My favourite resturant in Potch - The Beef Boys. The Akker is also a good café at the Bult. Perfect place to stay.
