This proved to be a very happy stopover! The accommodation is comfortable and well appointed. It is centrally located and very secure. Management were friendly and welcoming.


We were pleasantly surprised at how central it was. The neatness, smell and cleanliness is very welcoming. There is ample parking space. The grounds are very beautiful. Breakfast was also awesome. Do not hesitate to book accommodation here.


The rooms were comfy, beds and linen super and the bathrooms clean and tidy. The grounds are gorgeous and a lot of care has been taken to get the roses and vines healthy in an otherwise dry town. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts only too happy to accommodate requests. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.


The owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and clean. The location of the guesthouse is extremely safe and well situated being very close to shopping centres as well as Grey College and the University. The garden is beautiful and well maintained and there is plenty of safe on-site parking available.
