    All good, but they only do breakfast for food. The restaurants are close by and a handy map in the hotel info, so not an issue.

    Very helpful and attentive when needed (with printing and taxi's), it's a less than 10 min walk to various restaurants and felt safe (a greek place called Nikos Grill and an indian restaurant called Bombay Blu both great).

    We were not allowed to use the snooker table despite it being in working condition - it would seem that it was just repaired and the owners did not want it used. The bar was very poorly stocked no spirits. Bother the above features appear prominayy when marketing the venue

    Location of the guesthouse and comfort of the rooms. Breakfast was excellent although change of menu would be good

    A pleasant stay.

    Usually B&B's have a cold breakfast and juice set out so that you can help yourself as you get to the dining room. Unfortunately this was not the case here, and each table had to wait for a single server to take and serve requests. Not having even coffee or juice available while you waited to be served was inefficient. The hot breakfast, once it arrived, was very good though.

    We received a warm welcome, and the owners were more than happy to spend time chatting and getting to know their guests, and making sure we had everything we needed.

    TV had limited satellite channels. Missed the BBC world news. We stayed in the Leopard Room which is next to the bar and snooker area. It was not used while we were there but if you wish to avoid any possible noise then advise you ask for another room.

    Large comfortable room and bathroom had both shower cubicle and bath. Great location in a quiet residential area and within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Andre and Jack were most accommodating and Jack was a great help when we needed to spray paint on parts of our hired car before we returned it after two months on the road. Good plentiful breakfast personally served by Jack and Andre. Good wi fi in room and nice common areas. Secure off road parking. Loved the African artefacts.

    I would however have liked a stand alone shower in the room, but that just because i like that more that the sower in the bath. also to improve the parking situation, if there are a lot of guest at the B&B you are going to park someone in if you come in late.

    Great place to stay over for a few days, owners are friendly and accommodating and the room is tidy and sufficient. I would definitely recommend the B&B to anyone looking for a high quality affordable stay. But overall a great experience

    After a very long journey from London my brother and I were so relieved that the first stop on our SA adventure was here. A very nice area and a secure and impeccably kept guest house from the hosts Dave and Pam. This really did feel like a home from home especially having an English couple running the place. Lovely spacious rooms and a great breakfast was on offer too. The Broadway shops just a short walk away for essentials. Unfortunately the guest bar pool table was broken during our stay from a previous guest sitting on the pocket, this made me feel sad as how could you treat such a lovely place and hosts like that with no respect, hopefully it won't take too long to get fixed! Our hosts were also very helpful in lending us some scratch away cleaner when my brother dinged the hire car, which removed the scratch a treat and nothing was said, also good local info and easy maps to the airport were helpful too. I would definitely recommend Africa Regent to anyone you will not be dissapointed!

    They have one lady that does breakfast and cleans the rooms. She leaves early on Sundays, we has to fight to get her to clean our room and it was not done properly after they agreed to clean it. No fresh fruit juice, they use concentrate juice for breakfast. The bed is hard, the sheets were not soft, they don't use soft hotel sheets, if you expecting a typical Egyptian cotton be ready to settle for less.

    I had to carry my 20kg suitcase up the stairs, and when I asked for assistance, I was told "sorry my dear I have a bad back and cannot help you" The water pressure in the shower was very bad and I had to try very hard to shower and rinse the soap from my body. Breakfast selection was non existent, and no buffet. This is not family run as is advertised.
