We loved the tranquility, homely atmosphere & absolute cleanliness of the place. Although only a one night stop over on our way from Johannesburg to Durban, all our requirements were met & we had a wonderful sleep over,

Our room was spacios. On the photo it was the first window at the left. No AC but fan. You could walk to a nice Little market includung a well stocked supermarket, a restaurang etc. The view was great because the place is on a top. Good to have access to the pool. Comfy beds. Helpful host.
