Rothman Manor Guest House
We have stayed here a few times and it has always been excellent ! The garden was beautiful , rooms spotless and well appointed and breakfast delicious . Service was excellent at all times . Can highly recommend this hotel . I found the bed a little hard but that's my opinion , we like soft beds and others like hard ones !

Real German efficiency and friendliness
We stayed in the XL Suite which is situated in the loft of the building. We loved every moment of it. This Guest House is run by a German couple, and you shall receive the service you expect from Germans. The Suite consisted of bedroom with large kingsize bed, nice firm mattress, large cupboard with lots of hanging space and hangars, and plenty of light both in the room and to read with. Aircon does have heating setting as well. The bathroom was magnificent with shower, jet bath, 2 basins and is a large comfortable room. There is a kitchenette with coffee machine, cutlery and crockery, stocked fridge. The living area has a small round dining room table, couches, TV and everything you need. It was COLD and not once did I feel this cold in our Suite. That to me was a definite plus! The breakfast were delicious, great selection of items, freshly baked goodies, great tasting hot breakfast meals. There are umbrellas to use in the common room. Any problems were resolved immediately resolved. Small maintenance issues were sorted as promised. And the WiFi worked extremely well and did not cut out. That was a great feature. I can highly recommend this Guest House.

Rothman Manor Guest House
Sometimes, 5 stars does not do justice.
The term "luxury" to describe amenities is massively overused. I live in SE Asia and am used to very high Asian standards of genuine luxury and exclusivity. Many so called "luxury" resorts in other parts of the world, fall at the first hurdle with substandard amenities or service. Rothmans Manor, on the other hand fulfils any genuine expectation of real indulgent luxury, manifested in an exquisite attention to detail in the rooms, bathrooms, bedding, gardens, pool, public amenities and superlative attitude to personal service. I cannot praise this property enough. It is stunning.
