Rustic but very pleasant and forthcoming host

Clean, quiet, nicely furnished room. I like the older ambience with some tasteful antiques.Close to all amenities & eat outs.Staff were so hospitable and breakfast was really worth the eat. Kept me full for most of the day.Private outside area was adequate but perhaps the outdoor furniture needs attention.

It was a clean and comfortable room, everything you need is available.Unfortunately the shower hot tap did not function and was inclined to come off so showering was a little hazardous.We did report this to the staff, so hopefully it will be attended to.

I was met at Port Elizabeth by the owners and I was very pleased with the accommodation and excellent food. The room was well appointed, very clean, the staff were courteous and helpful and the grounds were very attractive. I had a great stay there and would definitely return.

A pleasant reception by the staff and a nice romantic room formed a nice start of my holiday in SA.
