Stayed for one night. Booked the suite which was a lovely looking room, big bathroom, all under a thatched roof. The biggest shortfall of the stay was the heat of the room, with no aircon, the fan provided didnt really cut it. Nice garden and good looking property. Breakfast was OK but not the best we had on our two...

Absolutely spot on guesthouse. Karen and Katrina both seem really laid back and this reflects on the vibe of the b&b. Really friendly, come and go at your own pace. Lovely pool area out the back with plenty spots to kick back after a day touring the wineries. The rooms really authentic with thatched roofs. Really well appointed. Slight downside...

We booked to stay 6 nights but left after only one night. The room 7 was very tiny with a bathroom that was no bigger than a cupboard. The thatched roof was exposed, it was very hot without air conditioning and overall it was not what we expected. We left after one night.

We only stayed for 3 nights but wish we had stayed for longer. We travelled with our 7 month old son, and were made very welcome by Peter, Katrina & their staff. The house is absolutely beautiful, with lovely rooms, gardens & pool. We actually had 2 different rooms, due to us booking late and the guesthouse being nearly fully...

We stayed at the Beautiful South for 2 nights as part of our tour of the winelands. Our welcome was warm and the property and facilities are great. Lots of room to stretch out by the pool and enjoy a glass or 2 of the local wines. The room itself was lovely 'desert rose' with a beautiful bath. Breakfast was...

The Beautiful South was our first B & B in South Africa and we were not disappointed. Peter was there to greet us and we found him to be very accommodating and extremely helpful with ideas for visits. We had a gorgeous room with all facilities and a substantial breakfast. We found a lovely restaurant, L'Olive, which turned out to...

It feels like you have returned home as Peter and Katarina greet you. They were the saving grace of our trip as we cancelled another B+B to return to The Bueatiful South for another night. From the thatched roof in the rooms to the pool area to the amazing breakfast, it was a perfect stay. I would rearrange any trip...

my husband, myself and 20 month year old son stayed here for two nights. We loved the beautiful south and like other reviewers, stayed here because of all the good reviews.
