Positive Reviews

Clean, spacious rooms

Guests describe the rooms as spacious, with comfortable beds and a good standard of cleanliness.

A quiet location

The guest house is located in a quiet suburb with a wide open field nearby. It is close to a main highway, which allows travellers straightforward access to the CBD and nearby sights such as the Wonderboom Reserve, yet it is far enough that traffic noise is not a major issue.

Friendly staff

The reception staff have received positive reviews for their friendly, welcoming manner.

Negative Reviews

Property in need of some TLC

Travellers often report minor but irritating general maintenance concerns such as doors not closing properly, leaky plumbing, and equipment such as fans and kettles in poor repair. Guests have also commented that the rooms could be repainted, and the parts of the building that were clearly once a garage are particularly unattractive and uninviting.

Be prepared for stairs

Guests comment that it is difficult to get around the property with a wheelchair, even in areas that are designated as "accessible." Most of the rooms can be reached by stairs only, as the property does not have a lift

Breakfast is a matter of taste

Though many appreciate that the breakfast included in the rate, guests would like to see a wider array of options available.
