Great hosts in a small, elegant and cozy guest house; Plenty of space in room and bath room; great garden and pool area; superbe breakfast
Just for information: main road can be heard a bit, but not too disturbing
very comfortable, lots of space, good size bathroom with powerful shower, great swimming pool and seating area, own outside patio
The room and facilities are amazing. Spacious and modern, with a small, private feel. If you read the guestbook, there is a lot of praise for the breakfast, which didn't disappoint. All in all, a great place.
The rooms are set around a pleasant garden at the rear of the property so our worries of noise from the main road were ill founded. The swimming pool was clean and well maintained. The room was of a good size and beautifully designed and prepared. Car parking was behind an electric gate and so secure. Breakfast was excellent (Joop is a scrambled egg expert!).
Very nice room, very nice garden, very nice breakfast, very nice host!
Wi-if the best Beautiful well thought out room Very attractive town Very helpful hosts
Owners were very welcoming and helpful. Extremely clean and well equipped rooms - chalets in the garden. Nice pool and wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend. We only stayed one night to break a long journey and would certainly return.
Friendly and highly motivated staff. Good recommendation for dinner.
Wifi connection was poor and only available for a single device at the time
The owners, Joop and Micky were so helpful and kind, nothing was too much effort. The breakfasts were superb.
Nothing bad to report!
The main house is charming in an antique way, showing good taste of the hosts and interest in beautiful yet practical design. The guest rooms are spacious, modern yet comfortable and inviting. The garden is a little piece of paradise with a nice pool area an pathways with benches to sit and rest. Breakfast prepared and served perfectly was the best beginning to a new day after a good nights rest.
absolutely nothing to complain about!!!
one of our most beautiful stays on our 4-week-trip!! we even needed a doctor and got prompt help! we recemmended this place already to our friends at home. really freindly owners, a beautiful garden with relaxing pool, perfectly designed spaceous cottages and a wonderful delicious breakfast!! and: the butter-knifes!! so pretty!! we luckily found them again in Johannesburg to bring one home. Southafrican art at its best. you can walk to the restaurants nearby!
absolutely nothing!! if you don't stay here,you'll regret it!!
This place is fantastic in every way. Very tasteful surroundings, great pool, quiet, restful and beautiful breakfast served by wonderful owners. Just a perfect last day in South Africa.
Only staying one night!
Very comfortable stay, lovely room
Loved room setup, cozy, clean and comfy. Hosts were very helpful and sweet. Breakfast was good.
Quality of service, friendliness of our hosts, excellent breakfast.
Nothing at all.
The little things count. We were offered a torch to help us on our way back from our evening meal and also an umbrella which fortunately we did not require
Fairly tight parking area. Just off the main road so we were aware of traffic noise
We loved the garden, pool and breakfasts! Our hosts were extremely kind and helpful.
The hosts were very friendly and the location great. We loved the garden and pool area.
There was nothing we did not like
What a lovely garden to enjoy for the summer traveler. The room was cozy even in the cold of the winter. A lovely breakfast with home made bread. A truly lovely stay!!
The service was excellent with Joop going out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. The guesthouse was central, quiet and had a beautiful garden. Everything about the place was just lovely!
Nothing, it was all fantastic
Between the green of the garden and the chirping of birds, I could really relax.
This really a extremely nice place to stay. Every room is in one of the few garden houses. You have enough space in there and even a little veranda. You also have a nice pool area to relax after a day of hiking. It is located in the heart of Monatu and you can walk nearly everywhere easily. The breakfast was really good :)!!!!
We had a garden room which was very tastefully decorated and had its own private courtyard area. The gardens themselves provided us with other shady spots for relaxing and the old house itself had been beautifully preserved.
There was nothing to find fault with.
In my imagination I own a little lodge/guest house and everytime I stay somewhere with my girlfriend we always make comparisons by running through our list of negatives and positives. In our minds we add, take away, put up hooks, change colours, move furniture an so on.. I'm so happy to say that we didn't have to bother here, everything was perfect. We loved our room, the owners were very friendly and helpful and we were so glad to have our last night in the Western Cape here. Alasdair & Gaelle
