    Friendly caretaker. Wifi works. Great breakfast with view.

    Waiting 20 minutes before being allowed in. Being woken up at the crack of dawn by the gardener talking and working. Room was very small but didn't realise it was R600 all told. Thought it was R600 person so would've gone more upmarket

    The warm welcome from Valencia, and the good breakfast she served. We also liked the wi-fi since there was no DStv in our room or the main lounge, and we had to stream our own DStv live.

    Our room was very small & cramped, including the bathroom. It was also road facing and very noisy with the traffic. The property is outdated and it also needs some maintenance work. The parking was very poor and the security needs upgrading for the cars i.e fence and gate
