The place was clean, but upon arrival the B&B was locked with no one in sight. I had to phone for someone to come and help us. There was only a quarter of a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.

Arrived at the venue (nothing like the photograph) to find it locked with no one around. Phoned every single number on the building (the cellphone now belongs to someone else) and not one was answered. Eventually after half an hour of standing in the street we left and found alternative accommodation.

This is a certain gem that we found in Middelburg, a place we knew little of but now thanks in large part to the excellent hosting of Mike, a spot that we would visit again. We truelly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the wonderfull food prepared by Johan and his able staff and the sincerity shown by our host to provide us with an truelly unforgetfull experience. I highly recommend others to consider this establishment when travelling to the area.

We'll definately be back. Quiet, clean, welcoming and they even put on a Christmas meal for the guests.
