This house was built in 1840 and restored in 2005. The thick walls, high ceilings and beautiful restored wooden floors, ensure a cool and pleasant atmosphere. Although this house is part of our National heritage, we have changed the inside of the house, that each room is en-suite, has its own separate outside entrance and patio, offering each guest with privacy.

Our rooms are spacious, all with tea and coffee facilities, fridge, air-conditioned, SABC and a DStv channel to choose from, luxuriously furnished with comfortable double and queen-size beds. We also have an ideal family unit consisting of two inter-leading rooms, one with three single beds and the other with a double bed en-suite bathroom. Our executive unit also called the Sun Room is a large spacious room with a queen size and a single bed, mini lounge suite, TV, Fridge, Microwave and air-conditioned. It also has a breakfast nook, limited cutlery and a sink area. We have safe and secure, off the street parking.

We are within walking distance of all the restaurants. Our guests enjoy this early evening stroll after a long and tiresome journey. Our guesthouse is named after a plant, by the name of Traveller's Joy, Clematis Brachiates that grows wild in our area, well known for its healing powers and soothing of tired muscles. This is exactly what we want our guests to experience, to have a pleasant stay and continue their journey well rested.

                      We had booked the "Sun room"which we knew was close to the parking area but on arrival found ourselves allocated to the room futhest from the parking with no advice of the change. The pre-booked room had been aalocated to a teacher who apparently could not find other accommodation.Since we specifically booked a room to suite our purposes we are not impressed that we were not notified of the change. This also prevented us to find an alternative.

                      The sun room was lovely, plenty of space and comfortable beds. We enjoyed our stay. Could just use a couple of fix-ups to the bathroom for loose tap fitting and shower door that doesn't close properly.

                      This was indeed such an amazing rest and recovery after my 800km trip. Thank you for your great service. You will soon see me again at Travellers Joy.
