Positive Reviews

Brilliant breakfast selection

Thanks to the amazing number of dishes on offer, it's easy for guests to find a wide variety of suitably delicious choices. They love that they can order exactly what they want from the kitchen staff, or help themselves at the self-service table. They specifically comment on the terrific omelettes, and usually start the day off with one. The freshly squeezed fruit juices also get a number of positive comments.

A peaceful retreat

Whether it's relaxing around the pool on a lounger in the enclosed courtyard, or sipping on a sundowner on the outdoor patio, most guests agree that the guesthouse provides them with an opportunity to unwind and de-stress. What they enjoy the most is the rooftop terrace, where soaking in the Jacuzzi is just as relaxing, and the perfect way to end a busy day.

More than hospitable

The owner and staff at the guesthouse will go out of their way to ensure a fantastic stay. Guests say that the moment they arrive, it feels like home. The staff are always around to answer questions, yet they are respectful of the fact that privacy is just as important. No matter what the issue is, visitors find that the staff will attend to matters in the shortest possible time.
