Pragtige omgewing. Vriendelike personeel. Baie bekostigbaar. Heerlike kos en volgens my vrou die lekkerste wildspastei. Verskeidenheid van curios te koop. Oulikste honde en geselserige kat kinders. Sal enige tyd weer terugkom. Verbetering : Die toilet in No.5 bly loop. Net daarna kyk. Verder was alles 100%. Baie dankie.Willie vd Merwe

The stone chalet was original and different. It was clean, but the beds and bedding are horrible. Duvet smelled of previous guests. That was unacceptable. The beds really old and uncomfortable. Very little investment in the place. Owners very nice and friendly. Pity so neglected.
