Dear Mdu, Thank you for your review, we are glad your stay with us was pleasurable. Apologies about the air-con remote, must have been the batteries, wish you had mentioned it to us. We serve just a basic breakfast which is why the amount is only R50 per person.

This is a beautiful guest house, when we checked in the owner was friendly and extremely helpful. The room was modern and comfortable. We lost some sleep due to noise from a guest who checked in quite late as our room was close to reception. But all in all we would definately stay here again.

The guest house is very clean. It was a pleasure to stay in such a place! We have found a home away from home! The staff was helpful. We also loved the quietness of the place. It was exactly what we were looking for.
