Reviewed 16 February 2015

Arriving after a long drive, we were invited to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea, even before we had checked in! And then we were served a complimentary slice of milk tart each. What a lovely welcome! The room was great but because there was a vacancy we were upgraded to a luxury room with an enormous bathroom. We went out early one morning and were provided with boxes of picnic breakfasts. The location was next to the sixth tee on one golf course, and opposite the entrance gate to the other. Breakfasts were really good and the staff could not have been more helpful. We will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Book the luxury room!

One night stopover but would like to have stayed longer. Lovely thatched cottages, friendly and helpful staff. Room good but let down by the shower facilities, rather cramped under the eaves of the bathroom. Excellent breakfast in pleasant surroundings.

Three times over the course of 15 years at this nice guesthouse. Owners are very friendly, rooms are good, loved the superior room with king bed and huge bathroom, the one with the purple decoration. Only 2 minutes by car to the good restaurants, walkable, but dark at night. Fridge in the main area where you can get a beer or wine. sorry Harry, I forgot to pay for the wine. Will make it up to you next time! Located at the st Francis bay golfcourse, but make sure you play the st Francis Links rather than the st Fancis bay course! Superb at very affordable price.

Friendly staff.
Lovely french toast breakfast.
However, the room we stayed in (upstairs) was very dark & even with all of the lights on at night, we could not see very well. Also, the kettle cord wasn't long enough to fit the kettle on the table so had to be used on the floor.

Dear guest

Thank you for bringing this to our attention we just had new water kettles in the room and should have modified them. My apologies. We will also improve the lights in the room.

Thank you again for your remarks and we do hope to see you again in the near future.

Kind regards

Harrie

Stunning accommodation with the friendliest staff ever! Our baby was ill Christmas Day and they were kind enough to bring pancakes to our room and were so incredibly nice and caring! Cannot recommend it highly enough. They definitely need 6 stars.
