The rooms are very neat, clean and well presented. The owners are friendly and helpful. We were however very disappointed with the area where the guesthouse was situated. As we unfamiliar with the area we would not know what are the more industrial area or more CBD area. This should, perhaps be indicated on the website.
Not impressed on certain things

First of all let's start with the positives, I found the room itself to be nice and tidy. Perfect for one or two persons sharing.
The negatives: first of all the animals, not everyone are animal lovers but there were 2 dogs left to roam around outside that would jump on you and won't stop. I wasn't a fan of the sharing of the lounge area and kitchen, and there was no privacy at all. The "view" which was supposed to be of the mountain from the room, wasn't really a view as it was blocked mostly by houses. the TV in the actual room we stayed wasn't really good and didn't have much channels, so couldn't watch much TV in private. The landlords were a bit too nosy for myself and my companion. They kept on asking how long we going to be when leaving the place to go sight see etc and made us uncomfortable since that is our business. The lady asked my companion if she wants to buy clothes and what I heard was a bit forceful about that after my companion looked at the clothes and said "no thank you". Lastly as we were leaving there were 3 cars parked outside, we came with 2 cars and were going out with one car to go sight see. We were then asked to leave the cars (with people we just met) to move the car at will and if they go out then they will leave the keys with the neighbor (who we never met before). Needless to say we weren't impressed on that.

Clean and tasteful accommodation. Friendly service and assistance from our host and hostess was much appreciated.
The parking/reception area does not do justice to an otherwise stunning establishment.

We had a very pleasant stay at Zen Tree B+B. The host (Nora) was extremely accommodating and waited for us until after midnight to check-in. The neighbourhood is not great and parking is limited, but the interior is beautiful and very clean. The B+B is located close to most of the major wine farms and wedding venues. The bed was very comfortable and provided a good night's rest.
We felt at home at Zen Tree and will recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in comfort at a very reasonable rate.
Treated more as family friends than guests

Mooie B&B in een minder aantrekkelijk deel van Paarl. Zeer behulpzame eigenaars, jammer dat er geen ontbijt voorzien is.

A really enjoyable experience for all of us, self, wife daughter & granddaughter. Errol & Nora van den Hoeven are a charming couple and did everything possible to make our stay a pleasant and memorable one. The B&B is beautifully appointed and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting the area.

Accommodation is clean and comfortable, new and fresh with tasteful contemporary décor. What you see is what you get which is great and just what you need for a good night's rest. And lastly (and most importantly), it's affordable.

In addition to offering a great room at very affordable prices (rooms are exactly as shown in the website pictures), the owners delighted us with their hospitality! This B&B is run by an electric family that looks after all your requests with friendliness. Rooms are comfortable and clean.

We had an amazing experience at the B&B. It has an intimate and homely feel but with a contemporary look. Completely eco-friendly with lots of beautiful greenery. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The towels are amazing! The breakfast was lovely and so was the chat with the host. All in all this was a wonderful experience.

We had a lovely time at Zen Tree. Our hosts went out of their way to be accommodating, and the cottage was a delight - bright, modern and beautifully furnished. We left as new friends and with a handful of produce from their own garden. Will definitely be back!
