(In the local language) Jy voel welcome die minute wat jy hulle awesome huis inkom. Imelda is such a warm and friendly person jy wil sommer lange bly. Ons kamer was stylish gemeubeleer, the linen was white, crisp and clean. The shower is fantastic, die aircon werk goed, die ceiling fan hou jou cool selfs in die moerse warm days...

It is a very nice B& B and Imelda is very helpfull and a warm person. The room is very nice and the breakfest is very good. Graaf Reinett is a quit Town but de Valley of Desolation is inpressife. There is nothing more to tell. In the weekends the shops and museums are closed.

If you're looking for a homey, friendly guesthouse with good value for money, Beau and I is the way to go. You're made to feel at ease and at home among the many family pictures and the traditional dark wood furniture including a revolving breakfast buffet.

Imelda and Beau were very gracious hosts and extremely helpful. The rooms are inside their home, and are very clean and comfortable. There are lots of decorations and personal memorabilia, giving it a very "homey" feel. The location is just a block or two from the main street, and is convenient to the grocery store. It's a good value for...

Beau & I is a gorgeous home-based guesthouse that is incredibly welcoming and comfortable. The proprietors are so friendly and waste no time sitting you down to some coffee and cake (provided as a courtesy) to explain the town's attractions and how to get around. The house is lovely and while some might describe the decor as "old-fashioned" I found...
