    Beautiful property with very friendly owners. They went way out of their way to make sure we had the right restaurant reservation and all the information we needed to have a great time. The kitties were an added extra sweet bonus.

    Nelleke was a great host and we felt really at home at the guesthouse. Because it was of season we got a bigger room which was really nice and spacious. The breakfast is very nice and home made, we had a lot of choices every day out of fresh and healthy options. It is very central to go to Wilderness and other places around George.

    Really enjoyed the breakfast. The cottage itself is lovely and th decor just right. We had a snafu with our check in; which in a sense was no one's fault. The turnaround once we got into the property was heroic.

    The rooms lacked cupboards so we had to live out of our cases. The bathrooms were incomplete, did not have a place for soaps or shampoos. No braai facilities.

    On a positive note, the breakfasts were outstanding, the staff were very professional, the room had heated towel rails & floors so that was very impressive as well as the beds were very comfy. The place was particularly neat & tidy. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.
