We stayed at Croft to break a long drive through the Eastern Cape. The accomodation was clean, comfortable, secure and suited to family. The Cottages are in a beautiful setting with some amazing birdlife. Warrick and Simone are excellent hosts who made us feel welcome and went out their way to ensure our stay was excellent. We highly recommend The Croft Cottages and hope to visit again!

We were looking, for our family of five, for comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation to break our car trip from Durban. The welcome was good as was the breakfast the next morning. We experienced a cold evening, but found the heating absolutely fine. Would repeat.
