Unique, very friendly and personal
We unfortunately only spent one night in this fabulous hotel, but we definitely plan to return! It is just SO interesting, vibey, friendly and comfortable. The historic building, art everywhere, magnificent huge room - all wonderful!! A bathroom you could dance in. Lovely back garden. Huge own private balcony. We had the Baines room, one of the ten large rooms. The owners are super friendly and treat guests like old friends. We'll be back!

This hotel has been in operation since 1866. It is old, floors are creeky and it has no air conditioning. Shower and sink were obviously added later to the rooms. To that I say ‘who cares!’ This place is awesome. So beautiful, so cool. The art is great, the property is great, the staff is super friendly and helpful. Last night the hotel bar and restaurant were both full and everyone was having a good time. The food was excellent by the way. Our room faces the mountains and we have a wonderful view of it from our own little balcony. Love it here!

Holiday Joy and Famly Fun
A very unique hotel and a wonderful experience. The art is amazing and there are lots of comfortable spots to sit and read or just relax. the food is excellent. Unfortunately, the Springbok pie pastry was chewy as it was probably warmed in a microwave oven, which is such a pity.
