4.5 out of 5 stars
The room we had was very nice and clean, and they even made a heart with rose petals for us, seeing as it was part of our honeymoon. Huge bathroom and comfortable bed. Not bad for a backpackers. Thank you for the stay.
Enjoyed every moment of our stay there. The accommodation was excellent and so was the location. Very close to Cape Town and all the usual places such as Chapmans Peak Drive, Cape of Good Hope, Simonstown, Boulders Beach etc. Sarah who ran the place was excellent and helped us with a number of requests. Would definitely visit and stay here.
Friendly, accommodating, comfortable. Will be back.
