                          Room was spacious, clean and with a comfortable bed. Shower pressure was good, mini-bar well stocked. Wifi was rather slow but that is no deal-breaker. Breakfast had a good selection and I would stay here again if I was in the area.

                          This is the first bnb where I was offered a breakfast pack because I was going to leave too early to catch breakfast. Very awesome!! The door to my room was a bit noisy.

                          Although this guesthouse is clean and nice, the atmosphere is unwelcoming and inhospitable.  From the first phone call to request that we drop off bags early, the lack of basic hospitality was evident.  In South Africa it is commonplace to expect that a guesthouse will assist its guests with small requests such as this to make their stay easier - you cannot expect this at the Saffron.  Such requests will come with a price tag and sneer from the owners.It was an unpleasant stay and I would not recommend this place to anyone.Establishment Response: DearSir, I received a request by telephone call...

                          The place is very nice and well equipped. The rooms are spacious and the staff are very friendly. I only stayed for 1 night but wouldve liked to stay longer.

                          Quite a pity i had so much to do during my stay at the Saffron, however i would definately return for some relaxation and tranquility that this beautiful place has to offer.Thank you for your hospitality.
