We arrived and were greeted by Dawn who showed us to our rooms. After a short team talk we went back to the office to see if we could extend our stay. Rob gave us a beer (it was hot) and checked availability but they were fully booked - our loss. The rooms are really comfortable suites with self catering...

We stayed for two nights at the Honeymoon Cottage. Loved it! Rob and his wife are very nice and friendly. One evening we sat together in the garden, had a nice talk, watching a thunderstorm in the distance. The view to the hills are stunning. Go for the breakfast, one of the best we had in SA. Good basis for...

Our stay at Ashbourne, though only one night, stands as one of the highlights of our trip to SA. The rooms are lovely, the bed huge and comfortable, and the breakfast enormous and delicious. The property is well laid-out, and we had a sense of complete privacy in our room and on its terrace. The views from the property are...

All the positive reviews are definitely warranted. The room we were in was beautifully appointed, the views are wonderful, the stargazing at night is magical. The welcoming hosts, Rob and Dawne, are extremely helpful with lots of insider tips of the area. Great place to stay, I can't wait to return!
