The Friendly owners, made our stay worthwhile. Comfortable, Bedrooms. Will recommend to friends and family to overnight, should they want to do their journey in stages, or for a weekend break away from the Hustle and Bustle of Cape Town. Breakfast was a Treat !!! Beautiful layout of the Gardens, sparkling pool, lots of Deck Chairs and Benches to unwind, enjoy the view or read a book, or socialize.
