Positive Reviews

A peaceful paradise

Although you will be ideally located with just a hop, skip and jump to the city centre, you might be forgiven for forgetting about the hustle and bustle of the city. Guests said they preferred to stay at the bed and breakfast and enjoy the lush natural bush veld.

Home-baked bliss

When you arrive you will be welcomed with hot, freshly baked muffins. Amongst other things, you can be sure you will be offered freshly baked bread during the early morning breakfast. Guests love the wholesome cuisine in the natural surroundings.

Absolutely no traffic noise

Although you won't have far to go to get to town, you can rest assured that you won't have any vehicles speeding up and down keeping you awake at night. Guests love the secluded oasis in the middle of a mini rain forest, and enjoyed being tucked away out of sight.

Negative Reviews

Bring your bug spray

Guests complained about an abundance of mosquitoes in and around this bed and breakfast, as it is located in a rainforest. Make sure you bring your repellent with.
