Mackaya Bella Guest House

Reviewed 3 September 2015 via mobile

We often stay a week at this venue at a time on work trips. The rooms are a great size and the attention to detail and upkeep of the venue is evident.
Our hosts are always friendly and willing to share stories of their travels and days.
This has truly become our home away from home.
Breakfast is a a treat and coming home to a friendly smile and home cooked dinner makes a tough day away from the family little better.

Stayed: September 2015, travelled on business

The owner Nickie is the most accommodating person I have ever come across. I wanted to spend as much time with my family from Dbn and asked if she could accommodate additional 6 guest for breakfast which she did without a fuss. The breakfast was excellent and she makes a mean pancake .The driveway is a bit tight for an SUV but even this was not an issue, she accomadated us by allowing us to exit via the main house gate.

Had 2 great nights spent there and will most certainly go back and refers other guests. Pleasant and comfortable atmosphere with attention to detail. Mike and Nicky are super hosts - very friendly and accommodating. Cannot fault them whatsoever.

I spent about 6 days at Mackayabella Guesthouse, and it really felt like home. All thanks to the friendly staff.
The rooms are spacious and impeccably kept. This is a warm, welcoming, and cosy guesthouse.
Thank you!
