Spacious, comfortable room and a wonderful host
I spent one night here on a work trip and the only thing I'm sorry about is that it was just one night. I will definitely be back. The room came as a pleasant surprise. It is very spacious, with a basic kitchenette and a comfortable sitting area for watching TV. It is sparkling clean, with quality white cotton bed linen and a mosquito net. The location is perfect within easy walking distance to the 24 hour Engen shop and a few good restaurants and breakfast spots across the road. John is a wonderful host who responded to messages timeously, and understands hospitality. When I explained that I had a bakkie load of photography equipment with me, and no energy to schlepp it upstairs to my room, he generously offered the use of his personal garage. Thank you, John! Hospitality like this makes such a difference.

Affordable and comfortable family get-away
This was the perfect way for our family to spend a long weekend in a home-away-from-home apartment. The rainy weather kept us indoors for most of the time, but the good wifi and indoor-braai meant that we could still enjoy the time. We had to ask for some extra towels and toiletries, but other than that, we were very happy and will definitely recommend Hornbill to family and friends.
