In my view not suitable for children...nothing to do and no gardens ir swimming pool etc. Tge accommodation consisted of a bedroom with en suite bathroom (shower), a loung area and a kitchen. The...

Thank you very much for the review, we appreciate it. We usually tell families that there is a playground with a swimming pool at the reception house that they can use for the children. The cottage that was used is one of our self-catering units where the space is limited for a garden, and children that are staying there can...

I arrived late on a sunday afternoon, but was so bowled over by the accommodations. Yes it is an old house, but the attention to detail was really great. The furnishings are mostly antique, but the bed is one of the most comfortable i have slept in in a looooong time. The bathroom is very quaint and so spotlessly clean....

The cottage was beautiful – roomy, clean, comfortable, and modern. It had a fully functional kitchen, large, airy living area, and a roomy bedroom. The bed was really comfortable, the surroundings quiet, so we...

Arrived in Graaff Reinet on an extremely hot afternoon, and were warmly greeted by the host. Immediately head for their refreshing borehole fed swimming pool, which the kids loved! The gardens are immaculate, with the cottages having their own private section, whilst the owners had the adjoining property. Rooms were very comfortable, and had everything we needed. We were very...

We had a very warm welcome from Hillary and her team for our cottage . Room was large enough for Us with aircon on already before we arrived - which was a help! Great swim in the pool helped cool us off . The pre booked dinner by Hillary at one of the restaurants helped as one could see that...

What a lovely situated and charming place this is! We felt like thrown back in time. With love for detail restored cottage in a quiet street, where the jacaranda was in full blossom. We had our private closed garden where we could enjoy birds slashing in the water bowl. Very relaxing. In the morning we had breakfast made by Virginia....
