Our stay at the Avondrood Guest House was amazing. From the moment we arrived we knew that we were going to enjoy our stay. Firstly the service is spectacular, the rooms are spacious, cool and beautifully set out (the best nights sleep we had in Africa). Our hostess was only too happy to help us make our dinner arrangements, and...

A very warm welcome of Justin and Anna. We felt us "at home". Nice "Entree" with the bar. Beautiful and clean room and bathroom. Cosy and quiet garden. Really a place to come back and to tell all the friends!

Avondrood was the perfect place to spend Christmas with my family and their two bedroom mountain view suite matched our needs exactly. The views, the light, the elegant decoration and the attention to detail were unmatched during the rest of our South Africa trip. Anna and Justin were wonderful hosts and always took care of us. Breakfast was delicious and...

One of the best places I have stayed, gorgeous quality quirky rooms, large bathrooms and such organised tranquility very welcome after a trip to Capetown. Justine and his team could not do enough to help our enjoyment in every way. Nothing was too much trouble I highly recommend this gorgeous guest house - you will not be disappointed!

We only got to stay for one night, but we had the most amazing time. Not only were we greeted by the owner and staff, we were offered a drink on our arrival, shown our beautiful room and the b and b. It doesn't feel like a b and b, but more like a luxury hotel. The breakfast spread was...

We stayed only one night in Avondrood but enjoyed it as if it were a lasting experience. Everything was just perfect: the amazing room with ensuite bathroom and hall, the beautiful settings including manicured garden and swimming pool, and a festive breakfast. All orchestrated by hosts with an eye for perfection and a zeal for hospitality. Highly recommended.

Only spent one night here, but it was perfect! Situated within walking distance of the centre of town. The decor in this establishment was beautiful and our room opened out onto the patio and garden. Large bathroom with a free-standing tub and separate shower, very roomy bedroom and lovely furniture. Justin and his team were very helpful and friendly and...

Great location right near the high street. Quite unusual with lovely rooms and outdoor area. Delicious breakfast. Only stayed for one night but would return to this area as the scenery is spectacular.
