    A warm, friendly welcome, clean comfortable room and hearty breakfast. When the time came to leave our hire car would not start and the extra help from the staff in dealing with Europcar was invaluable in helping us continue our journey.

    mediocre stay at Big Five

    the stay was not so good - the area was not good its also very far from centre and it takes such a long time due to traffic. we had to skip breakfast as it only starts at 7 am wont use this place again - not for our type of business we needed a business hub as well for our emails and scanning

    We were en route to Port Shepstone from East London and this location was midway. A bonus with this stay was the home cooked meal — especially welcome since there were no restaurants nearby.

    Comfortable guesthouse, convenient location

    Nice guesthouse conveniently located just off the main road to Kokstad in the northern suburbs of Mthatha. Polite staff to welcome your arrival. Comfortable, well-appointed rooms with a few minor flaws like a leaking shower head and 2 blown light bulbs in the bedside lamps. Good breakfast.

    B&B bien placé, propre avec un magnifique design

    Ce B&B est idéal lorsque vous avez besoin d'un transit sur votre route. Nous nous rendions vers Durban (et venions de Tsitsikamma). Cet endroit est idéal pour passer une soirée tranquille, se reposer et avoir un bon petit déjeuner avant de reprendre la route. Les alentours ne sont pas attirants niveau touristique mais ce n'était pas ce que nous cherchions non plus.
