Great B&B on an old farm. Has a beautiful park. One of the best B&Bs we have seen on our trip through South Africa, Very good restaurant nearby. Only a short distance from Addo game reserve. The ladies who run the place were very helpful and friendly.

We had a two night stay at Gerald's and enjoyed it very much. The atmosphere is so relaxed and welcoming. They do not provide an evening meal but the places recommended to eat by the extremely helpful proprietor were very good. The room was spacious, very tidy and yet quite homely. The gardens were stunning. A great place to unwind.

We have been at this lovely guesthouse and all the 3 of us enjoyed this place: Spacious, clean rooms, very quiet. Very friendly staff! Nice breakfast (no buffet, but you will get eggs etc. cooked). A very relaxing place. Good restaurant close to the guesthouse. Definitely a recommendation for everybody who wants to visit the Addo Elephant NP.

We found the staff to be very pleasant and rooms comfortable and spacious. Breakfasts were very good with enough choices to suit all tastes. A lovely old house and beautiful gardens. Conveniently close to a few restaurants.
