Our fourth visit to this charming guest house located a few minutes off the N2. It make an ideal place to break the journey along the route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. Every time we stay ( four times now), we regret not allowing an extra day to just stay and enjoy the lovely environment and facilities offered by...

Absolutely gorgeous guest house. The staff is so very welcoming and friendly, the whole property is stunningly beautiful and our room was almost too spacious for just one night's stay. The pool area was our favorite spot and breakfast next morning was delicious! The XL Suite provides you with everything you could possibly ask for and after our time here...

This is a very friendly, comfortable and well run place to stay on the 'Garden Route'. It is on the edge of a very pleasant and interesting small town. Although the Manor is on a main (but not very busy) road, the layout of the rooms is such that they all face inwards, overlooking the beautiful gardens and there was...

We stayed in the Morning Sky Suite which is very large and comfortable. It has its own terrace (not that we needed that) and is lovely decorated. The garden is very nice, large and peaceful. Breakfast is very good and made with love for the little details. We had dinner at the Koornlands and can highly recommend it...very fresh dishes,...

A lovely guest house with beautiful suites. We over looked the lily pond and had a private sunbathing area. The pool was a good size and beautifully clean. The gardens were lovely. The breakfast area was good either a terraced area or inside. There was a good choice and all was well presented. The owners were very friendly and made...

Lovely swimming pool and pool area for an end of the day relax. It also has a game reserve at the end of the garden where zebras can be seen. The room we stayed in was poorly furnished and faced the road. Most rooms face the pool and garden - make sure you book one of those.

We booked the morning sky suite which is beautiful...with its small terrace overlooking the lily filled pond and a separate sunbathing terrace with sunbeds and umbrella leading via a floral arch to the swimming pool. The suite itself has a lovely king-size bed, dressing room and large bathroom. The grounds of the guest house are a delight...with lots of different...
