Pros: A charming old property ,rooms were large and nicely furnished . We were greeted by Sue who made us feel very welcome , and made sure we had everything we needed. We met owner Terry in the small bar and again made very welcome meeting local and visiting people . Good breakfast next morning , it was in a good location for us on our way to the Kruger.
Cons: A little difficult to find , as dark streets ,thought we had missed it !!
Pros: We had a great stay! It felt like the traditional BNB experience where we were welcomed and treated like family. Friendly discussions, excellent food! and very cared for. Jaco took great care of us by cooking dinner and breakfast and offering a taste of Amarula, engaging in conversation, leaving an umbrella outside our door when the clouds came in, providing driving tips to our next destination, and leading the way out of the city in his car since there was road construction going on. Beautiful little town and a perfect stopping point to relax and be well taken care of. The malva dessert was amazing!
Cons: The room and bathroom is slightly dated and the shower temperature is tricky, but this adds to the charm of the location and is out weighed by the friendly hosts and good food.
