We were surprised to find this nice guesthouse with swimming pool and a no nonsense SA host who spoke excellent Dutch and was a certified guide of SA. Though no airco the rooms were cool and spacious. Breakfast was good with home made products and tea and a glass of port waiting in the room. Good food at the "Handelshuis" restaurant around the corner.
