              Onbekende omgewing vir ons, dit was ons eerste besoek aan Rhodes. Baie netjiese verblyf.  Alles wat jy nodig het. Pragtig, skoon en goeie waarde vir geld.  Sal dit aanbeveel aan vriende en familie.

              Walkerbouts is the ideal country inn. The bedrooms are large and comfortably furnished in an old fashioned, homely style. There is plenty of heating (including electric blankets) for the cold weather. The lounge and dining room are full of interesting memorabilia and there is a good selection of books on the local flora. The food - breakfast and dinner - was excellent. It was good homestyle cooking well prepared and nicely served. Marie went out of her way to see that the guests were comfortable and well fed.Owner Dave Walker welcomed us to Rhodes "The Centre of the Universe" and both he and...

              Our night stay at Walkerbouts was very special in that, apart from the super welcome of David and the staff and the awesome dinner, we met a few of the local people, as well as some of the other guests, in the Walkerbouts pub. All very friendly and festive. Highly recommended.
