I travelled to White River to visit my son. Unfortunately I wasn't able to stay with him and was lucky enough to find the beautiful Ambience Inn. Izzy and Hannes had decided to limit occupancy for the first part of the Easter weekend so I was the only guest and had the full attention of them as well as their...

We were greeted on arrival by the owners who provided complimentary welcome drinks. The bedrooms were all similar overlooking a charming garden...

Our hosts were very helpful giving us detailed information what to do and where to go. Especially their recommendations regarding the restaurants was very good. The garden is beautiful and the breakfasts are really excellent. We booked for 3 nights but extended our stay by two more nights!

The first thing we noticed when we entered the hotel grounds was the peace & quiet amidst the greenery not very far from a city. Despite the lack of rain, hotel grounds have been beautifully maintained. The elongated bluish pool was a nice addition to the green landscape. It was obvious that a lot of love & care has gone...

Thoughtfulness and attention to detail are what makes Ambience Inn, and its delightful hosts, such a pleasure to visit. The place has a charming combination of old-world Morocco and fresh mid-century sleekness to it, and the lush gardens immediately transport you into a haven of peace and relaxation. My room had every amenity I could want and more; the breakfast...

Issy and Hannes , Thank you for the warm and friendly welcome upon arrival. You made us feel very special and welcome at your beautiful home.

I was greeted with a fruit juice when I arrived at this magnificent garden. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed and are spotless. Featured is 2 showers with a double shower outside behind a perfectly private walled garden! There is plenty of coffee and tea to hand with fresh milk. An enjoyable and highly recommended place to stay.
