    What a lovely, clean and neat place. The rooms are beautifully done and super spacious. Rooms also have DSTV and free wifi. The host/owner is so friendly. And the free breakfast was AMAZING. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    Our room was quiet, private and well appointed. Heating and electric blankets were apprecited in the cold weather. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean and spacious. Danel is a welcoming host. A choice of breakfast dishes and the ones we chose were lovely.
