A pleasant place to stay
This guest house is in a lovely area, also convenient for visiting the Winelands and the False Bay coast. The gardens are very attractive. Our room was large, the bed was comfortable and the modern bathroom spacious. The staff were all very pleasant. There were some small details which would improve the accommodation - somewhere sit to use a laptop (they have free wi-fi), hang up a wet coat and a waste basket would be useful. Breakfast was ok but rather surprisingly no fresh fruit is available.
