We booked for 1 night at Cowey's Corner. When we arrived we were shown to an outside room that was pokey and basically a bed in a box. The look and feel of the rooms displayed on the website did not resemble the outside room. The manager was extremely sympathetic and fortunately was able to relocate us within minutes to a nearby guesthouse that was great. Please be aware when booking at Cowey's Corner to stipulate you want a room in the main house.

Cowey's Corner is a beautiful retreat, quiet and understated, comfortable and homely with a touch of luxury. Thuli and Ethel are lovely ladies and great cooks. We will most certainly be back.
