We had a superb stay at Penguin Palace. There is nothing to fault. Every single detail of this guest house is well thought out. From the super soft linen to the amazing breakfast. We stayed in the honeymoon sweet which was beyond perfect and stunningly decorated. It has a gorgeous view over the bay with its own private balcony. All the rooms have a view! Thanks Gift and Innocence you were wonderfull hosts.

My husband and I spent the weekend at this beautiful establishment. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the wonderfully friendly, Innocent. He gave us awesome news, as our room had been upgraded and we were presented with a lovely bottle of sparkling rose. This was all in an effort to make my birthday a very special day! I really appreciated this kind gesture, and the thoughtfulness of the establishment. To top it all off the breakfast we received the next morning was out-of-this-world good! It was freshly made and absolutely delicious. Thank you to Gift and Innocent for being such awesome hosts...
