It's a quick drive from the guesthouse to Noordhoek's many attractions and in particular it's exquisite beach. We chose this area because of a family wedding. When we visited - the property was next door to a building site - however we didn't hear any noise, plus that is a temporary situation. We were given the Honeymoon suite which was...

The guesthouse is in a lovely setting and the gardens and views were just beautiful. I found the owners and the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast and papers each day were great. I think it is the perfect place for a romantic weekend. Noordhoek is more suited to couples and families in my opinion, but if...

Marc and Marjolijn were extremely accommodating and we felt very welcome! The room we stayed in was modem, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! And it's only a short distance from Noordhoek village and the beach.

A lovely guesthouse. We had a beautiful room and really enjoyed our stay. We felt that the cupboard space was not sufficient for a couple though and the Jacuzzi didn't seem to be working properly either. An enjoyable breakfast each morning, but we felt the English breakfast was insufficient for what we had paid.

My boyfriend and I spent one night at African Queen Guesthouse. The hosts were welcoming, warm and friendly and we really felt quite at home. They had kindly upgraded us to a larger room which was a lovely surprise on arrival. The house and gardens are beautiful and would be very relaxing during summer. The weather was chilly when we...
