An unplanned stay at Aan Dorostraat Guest House following a medical emergency was a wonderful experience in difficult times. Gwen and Johan couldn't have been kinder or more supportive to my family. The rooms are immaculate and incredibly comfortable, and the breakfasts lovingly prepared by Johan were a triumph! The house is in a superb location on the edge of...

Where do I start?! Gwen and Johann are absolute stars. We found ourselves unexpectedly on our way to South Africa and staying at Aan Dorpstraat last week after my father was taken ill whilst on holiday there. Both Gwen and Johann went over and above the usual B&B responsibilities. They helped translate, phone people and moved mum and dad to...

This is my third visit to Aan Dorpstraat Guest House and once again I was not disappointed! This time I stayed in a little tucked away room at the top of the stairs in the front of the guest house - one that is not often available - and I loved it. I felt like I was perched in an...

Gwen and Johan really, really care that you enjoy your stay (and are very good at making sure that you do). They provide the staples; a great bed, and a great breakfast, and arrange everything else for you (after discussion, of course!).
