Very good, pleasant place for a night or two in Prince Albert. Pretty and well-organised. The owner has thought of everything.

Our hostess was very welcoming and we enjoyed meeting her dogs! The room was a bit cramped, but adequate for an overnight stay. we were glad of the aircon as it was extremely hot. The bathroom only had a curtain to separate it from the bedroom, which was not ideal.

Blyhuisie is relaxed, adequately equipped, secure and clean. It is plain in the best sense - no breakfast or TV and the internet is from the 19th Century - so one's business is confined to getting comfortably and affordable bedded. I got a horrible headache on my first morning and lo! Barbara turned out to be both a pharmacist and a ministering angel. I hope that this service is not too frequently called for, but what a bonus!It was a pleasure to meet Barbara and we will definitely return.
