Awesome place !! 6-8 Sept 2020

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Sept 2020
We had a glorious stay thank you very much! Sending out WhatsApp messages to confirm dinner reservations and providing the menu for the evenings are an excellent idea. Stefan and Liezl are excellent hosts , not only for the guesthouse, but also for the tourism industry (such as providing digital maps of the area), and advising on different types of routes for the best flower watching of the season as well as the conditions of the roads of that particular area. The overall service of the dining room staff and cleaning staff was also of a high standard our - overall stay was a lovely experience indeed!

      What a wholesome friendly gem. The owner as well as every single staff member gladly treated us as family, we had a lovely meal for dinner and the best breakfast served on our own little picturesque patio. Our comfortable well appointed room had a lovely river view and
      the birdsong can be heard long into the night and the stars we saw at night are the only thing brighter than my smile when we had to say goodbye.
      We will be back, our stay was too short and will be a fond memory for a long time.
      Thank you for treating us with open arms!!

      Business stay, combined with pleasure. The service is exceptional. Hilsa, Stefan, Liezel and the whole team walks the extra mile with a constant smile and positive attitudes all the way.
      The rooms are comfortable, white linen, electric blankets, homemade rusks and filter coffee in my room .... strong WIFI connection, comfortable desks to work at in the evening.
      The surrounding is just what you need after a hardworking day and the food is absolutely devine!

      You walk in after a long drive. Friendly staff greet you and check you in hassle free. Already you feel at home. Fires are burning. Wholesome soup await you. Music playing. Beulah views, such detail. Flowers on all the tables. The owner, Hilsa, personally greet you. The rooms are lovely. With comfortable pillows and clean white bedding. Everything you need it there.

      We enjoyed the friendly and capable attitude of our hosts Liezel and Stefan during our recent road trip to the West Coast to see the flowers. They went out of their way to ensure 'nothing is a problem'!
