We were lucky to get three rooms on very short notice. Price was right and it is certified 4 star. The room I stayed in was across the road in one of a few "Victorian" cottages, each of which has 2 ensuite rooms fit for two couples or a small family. The first cottage had a terrible smell coming from...

Our welcome to the property was great and the staff are super friendly. We had two rooms upstairs in the main building and had a little difficulty late in the evenings when other guests were making a lot of noise at the lounge directly outside our rooms. With no staff being available at the time (and the fact that we...

our room was well decorated and spacious. Staff very welcoming, a glass of fruit juice offered on arrival went down well. Breakfast was delicious with anything you could possibly want on the table. Mint and lemon water and home made cookies on the dining table if one needs a small refreshment. Wifi availability good, tv in the room. Honesty bar...

Staff happy to receive us in the middle of the night. Discovered in the morning that we had the cottage to ourselves with facilities of which we were unaware. We found the large breakfast table shared by all an awkward arrangement as there was one of everything on the table, and you had to get up to fetch milk, jam,...

Sweet Ocean offers several guesthouses - I was across the street from the main building in a very nice guesthouse and the accommodations were incredibly spacious - a kitchen, living room, sitting area, and a lovely area outside in the back (these areas are shared, but we never saw the people in the other room). Our room had a private...

This is the second time we have stayed at a Sweetest Guesthouse location and we were not disappointed. The service and friendliness of the staff was excellent. Unfortunately the bedrooms did not have air conditioning, but a large fan was provided. Parking a vehicle was not easy on the narrow road and only parking outside the house was limited to...

Thank you for the great time while we staying. We enjoy it so much. Espacially our daughter loves the pancakes and their little bed. Perhaps we will come back for a longer stay. Your country is really great!

Very special guest house with traditional decor and very stylish. All rooms are individual, plenty of space with access to sun loungers and fridge with honesty list. Kind and friendly staff - Memory 2, Faustian and Tatenda. Easy walk to sea front which had great walkway in either direction and hop-on bus stop. Outdoor swimming pool there too.

Memory booked our trips to Robbenisland and Langa township. She is very good and professional. Next time we will book this guesthouse again. 5 minutes walk to the beach, restaurants and hop on/hopp off bus. We could park our car easily here
