Not a 5 Star Guest house anymore, room we stayed in was not up to standard,aircon was out of order, and heater was not warming the room. Electric connections are in poor untidy condition, alarm eye was hanging loose. Nails on 2 walls was a ugly sight. The place definitely are in need of maintenance. The food was good and personnel were very attentive, but could not help with the aircon that was out of order. Think this was a problem even before we checked in, although we were assured the aircon was working??? They blamed it on loadshedding. The new owners need to up their standards to get this guest house back to 5 Stars. As it was before.

Room tip: Parking was only available after 16H00

I took my husband for a birthday lunch. The venue is lovely. The waitress and staff were trying their best but it was obvious they were badly trained. The Manageress was totally uninvolved.
Menus were presented in very old CRUMPLED office plastic pockets tied together with cable ties - COVID RISK?
The dinner rolls presented without side plates were as sweet as donuts.
The menu contained the most basic outdated wine list. Only white wine SAUVIGNON BLANC and sweet wine DESPITE the menu stating various recommended pairings not available on wine list??
I had pork neck with honey mustard sauce. The sauce was requested twice and came when I was halfway through the meal and was basically a small mug of hot english mustard with a bit if honey-inedible. The vegies looked & tasted like frozen.
My husband had hake & chips but they said they only had kingklip. The fish looked & tasted like I & J box fish & the chips were almost inedible
Very disappointing. Will not return Pity the manageress seems to think the waiters are to blane for her incompetence. The waitress was the only good thing about this sub standard eatery
How this place has a five star guest house rating is beyond my comprehension

We stopped for breakfast. All 4 ordered the Art Lover's special @R95.00. We waited over 50 minutes. When it arrived there were no hashbrowns. The sausage had dried out and our plates were full of hair.
The waitress tried her best but was obviously overwhelmed. We had to go in search of a manager and when we told him all we got was an "oh sorry"
Not 5 star at all

Spent our anniversary weekend at Art Lovers Guesthouse. Welmien was such a warm and welcoming hostess. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms and dining area was so beautifully decorated. Will certainly be back

Art Lovers Boutique Guest House is a gem in Parys. Willemien has a hands on approach and a friendly manner and made us feel very welcome. Wonderfully decorated Guest House. The room is large with beautiful furniture and paintings. Comfortable, good mattress. Beautiful bathroom with large bath. Breakfast included a plus and the Eggs Benedict delicious. Safe parking. Will certainly return and can highly recommend it.
