About Arum Guest House

A grand villa located in the residential Bonnie Doon suburb of East London, Arum Guest House offers secure electronic access.

The eight en-suite rooms are elegantly furnished and decorated, and feature amenities such as flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, free Wi-Fi, tea/coffee stations, and air conditioning to keep guests perfectly cool. Blackout curtains allow for an excellent sleeping environment.

Ample free parking is available behind secure gates. A backup generator ensures that there are no disruptions in the event of a blackout.

A fully cooked breakfast, which also includes continental items, is served each morning. Later meals can be enjoyed at the Cow and Milk Shed. Just a six-minute walk away, it wins praise for its pub-like atmosphere and hearty dishes.

The white sands of gorgeous Nahoon Beach are just a seven-minute drive from Arum Guest House. Those in need of retail therapy can head to the expansive Vincent Park Shopping Centre, which is less than three kilometres from the property.

Positive Reviews

Quiet and secure neighbourhood

Travellers are very impressed with the guest house's immediate neighbourhood. It is found to be attractive, quiet, and safe. The proximity of the beach is also mentioned as a big plus point.

Exceptional staff

Reviews suggest the staff here are well versed in the art of hospitality. Guests report that they are warmly welcomed by either the owner or one of her staff, and that all employees on site can't do enough to assist and make their guests feel welcome. A particular note is made of the owner's dining recommendations, which are said to be faultless.

Great rooms all round

Guests seem to have only praise for the rooms here. The general consensus is that they are very comfortable. The first thing that is noted is that they are well cleaned before check-in, and that the dedicated housekeeping team do a great job keeping them that way during a stay. Guests also remark that the rooms are spacious, with more than enough room to stretch out and relax.

Negative Reviews

Limited TV channels

Those looking to kick back and perhaps enjoy a little downtime watching some TV seem to end up disappointed. They note that there is only a limited selection of TV channels available, with even the ubiquitous international news channels not part of the package.
