Excellent value in a very prime location. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable and the wireless internet is very welcome. The guest house is close to Brooklyn Mall and various restaurants (+-0.5 km) which makes it a cinch for grabbing a good meal and doing a bit of shopping without having to venture into the heart of the city.

Rooms very neat. Great service. I liked that I chose my own breakfast and enjoyed it. The staff is very professional. The room was spacious, tidy and well decorated. But there was no WiFi which is very important when I travel for business.

My advice is to avoid this place. The service and the treatment of guests is atrocious. When we arrived a base of a bed was made up (absent of the mattress), and not to mention the dirty cutlery in the self catering unit that we stayed in. That was the quality of accommodation offered. As one of the previous reviews...

Never before have I had cause to resort to writing about my experience of a place without having actually stayed there. My issue concerns the problems I have experienced in retrieving my deposit from this establishment after I cancelled my booking according to the cancellation policy. All my emails to this place went unanswered ( 5 or 6 of them),...
