Sylvan Grove Guest House
A lovely home away from home. Welcomed by a very friendly Amanda and had a great nights rest in a clean and comfy room.

Exactly what I needed whilst my husband was in hospital..... quiet, comfortable, clean and a delicious breakfast. Was disappointed in the TV programmes I couldn't get, but wasn't serious for me as I was chilling.
Beverley, za2 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Comfortable stay, good location
The room and bathroom we stayed in was spacious. The breakfast was well prepared and hearty. The location is great . The service is professional. If you are looking for a comfortable stay this is the place, but if you are looking for more character and a cosy atmosphere this might not be for you. I would suggest this more for the business traveller. In summer it could be better as it has a nice pool area.
