Myself and two daughters (1 and 4) stayed at Lavender Moon for two weeks and had such a wonderful time. We had family occupying two of the other rooms and it was lovely that we could all feel relaxed and enjoy the guesthouse together. The owner, Claire went above and beyond to meet our needs and was so very welcoming. My children and sister's children adored her as she was so helpful and made an effort to get to know them and play with them so well. The staff were also very friendly, helpful and also were very good with the children.
Our room (suite 3) was very spacious, as were all the rooms, well equipped, clean, and extremely comfortable - Claire ensured that the children were well catered for also by supplying a single bed for my four year old and travel cot for the baby, everything had been well thought out and taken care of. The bathroom was clean, spacious and perfect for what we needed.
One of the best things about our stay were the delicious breakfasts - everyday there was a lovely selection of fruit, yogurts, cereals (including the best homemade granola), and juices for us to help ourselves too, we were then brought out a hot breakfast which was something different each day, my favourites were the breakfast burger and the pancakes. All of this was made even more special by being able to enjoy it by the balcony with a great view of the sea.
Overall I cannot rate this guesthouse enough, the whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the service we received was second to none and far more personable than any chain hotel would ever be. It is certainly a place I would recommend to anyone. As we have family in South Africa, we will definitely be going again and staying at Lavender Moon - looking forward to seeing you then Claire!
