Great B&B to start your south african journey! Beautiful room furnishings and hotel grounds. Helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. The only downside is that it's on a closed residential area. Beautiful, but there's not much to do around.

Thank you for taking the time to write in. We're thrilled to hear you liked the rooms, the grounds and our very special breakfast spread. We're sorry to hear that you felt the closed residential area restricted you. The 'boomed' area is there for security reasons (mainly to monitor traffic in and out of the Rivonia Valley), but just outside... More
