The house is an antique. It's well maintained and the old school wood interior is in my view beautiful. It adds an ambience that is often missing in some establishments.
Importantly this bnb is on High Street and is across the road from Rhodes University and a museum. Also just up the street is the High Court and numerous coffee shops, restaurants and retail outlets.
When I got to my room i imagined it would be a standard room with ensuit bathroom and shower... mayhap a coffee station. Instead I was greeted with a furnished lounge, kitchenette, bathroom, two bedrooms and a rather naughty back door.
The kitchenette has a fridge, cupboards with full cutlery, microwave, two plate stove and a wash basin.
The main bedroom is spacious with cupboards, work desk and a queen size bed.
The other bedroom is similar but has two single beds instead of the Queen size bed in the main bedroom.
The bathroom has your standard shower basin etc.
What was different about this particular bnb is that it is surprisingly quiet. Which for me is a major plus.
Unfortunately dinner is not served but if one literally walks across the road there are at least 3 or 4 good restaurants. Breakfast is served and includes tea coffee juice and continental breakfast and your choice of full English breakfast.
Free WiFi is available and a pool should one require a dip.
