Lovely place - they just need to have more options in the breakfast menu.
Hilton Chirambadare Nov 2010
Bedlamp switch - connection not good.
Electrical lead where kettle gets plugged in, has open wires - dangerous.
Otherwise lovely and quiet for tourists who seek rest and away from city noise.

Karen Muller Mar 2010
The place is nice and in the centre of the town/ city. The shops are accessible and rooms are fine.There is a need to maintain the garden inside the yard.
Reuben Khumalo Jun 2009
We were a little disappointed. The room we had ( Hunters rest) has a kitchen, which is not equipped with plates, cutlery etc. The room was absolutely freezing cold, despite us letting Martinus know exactly when we were arriving and keeping him updated. The place is a little tatty.
I was also surprised to be charged extra for the breakfast as it does not say anything of the sort on the booking. The rate is reasonable for the room, but one expects bed & breakfast.
