Absolutely brilliant. Beautiful building and room. Secure gated entry and gated parking. Excellent breakfast and lovely ladies cooking and serving it. Bedroom had beautiful period style furniture and a massive bed. Best place we have stayed in South Africa so far. Got a very good price and surpassed all expectations.

We scoped this on a special rate for dad visiting daughter. Safe parking off road. Old world charm and crisp clean sheets. Close to everything important for a short stay. Walking distance to campus and good restaurants and coffee shops.
