“Wonderful hospitality and attention to detail”
Reviewed 27 December 2015

The beautiful and spacious establishment with the home away from home feel is unforgettable. We had a wonderful, albeit, brief stay at Lumley's Place but what impressed me most was the attention to detail and the effort that was made to accommodate our requests. The manner in which we were received set the tone for our stay and the warm hospitality and the great food will certainly ensure our return in the future.

My husband and I enjoyed an overnight stay at this beautiful guest house with an awesome view!. Booking was suggested and done by a guest house we were staying at in Cape town. Our reception upon arrival gracious and hospitable. Benita is a wonderful hostess and always willing to go the extra mile. Our room was comfortable and had all the necessary amenities and more. Breakfast the next morning was tasty! We would stay here again if we go back.

My partner and I enjoyed an overnight stay at this wonderful establishment. Booking was simple and efficient, and our reception upon arrival gracious and hospitable. Benita is a marvelous hostess and always willing to go the extra mile. Our room was comfortable and had all the necessary amenities and more. Breakfast the next morning, delicious!! All round one of the more pleasant and enjoyable stays we have had in a family run guesthouse over our years of traveling. Highly recommended!!

Lumley's hosted my 21st Birthday Party where 80 family members and friends enjoyed top class food and decor, excellent hospitality and service and a night full of love, laughs and dance. Will definitely recommend this place for a formal party. There was enough room for the dinner at tables but also for drinks and dancing afterwards.
