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!

The guest house is situated in a lovely, beautiful spot, the rooms are neat and clean and the owner is friendly and ready to make an extra effort to help her guests.

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.

Croft Cottages was truly a pleasure. There were four of us of very varying ages and we had some odd requests to make, for various reasons. Simone & Co valiantly dealt with them all. As animal lovers we were charmed to meet their very friendly dogs and peacock.
If there is any complaint then it can only be the state of the gravel road after much rain. This is not under the control of Croft Cottages and it would not put us off going to Croft again. We LOVED it.
