Will book here again
Had a good stay. Peaceful bedroom in a quiet neighborhood. Had all my meals at the nearby Canal Walk centre, so just needed a safe and cosy place to stay overnights.

I feel the pics on the website deceived me, not what I expected. The place is older than what the pics made it look.

6/10 Good

The experience fell below my expectation (based on the website). The confirmation of my prepaid booking was only received after I had arrived at the establishment thus delaying reception. The room was rather a disappointment, I had to call for assistance to kill a cockroach. A new bed in that room is required. One of the bedroom windows not closing properly.As much a disclosed in advance I was not ready for the inconvenience of an outside shared toilet and bathroom. Apparently rooms are not serviced over the weekend, as such when we came back in the evening it was rather depressing to get into a room in the same condition that we left it in the morning. We never had breakfast because the only available ingredients were cereals and coffee. This was definitely not value for the money. Before I left the bathroom was busy, I was allowed to go into the room next door, that was perfect in all respects. It even had its own toilet and shower. There needs to be consistency in standards.

Just ok
While this is such a nice guest house, I was not impressed with how I was surprised without knowledge by a full house of a wedding entourage. This made me feel like a stranger and out of place. I also had to endure a lot of movement and noise. This was a terrible experience that taught me not to ever stay in a guest house again.

10/10 Exceptional

Lovely friendly atmosphere and comfortable beds
The owners were very friendly and helpful, suggesting cool places to go and ordering in food and wine. The beds are immensely comfortable and the staff were wonderful too. I would definitely go back :)

This is a very sweet little bed and breakfast. The staff were very welcoming and pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable. It's a little away from the main attractions tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood. Has a small pool and shared kitchen facilities if you need them. Very pleasant stay overall and value for money.
