About Albatross Guesthouse
Albatross Guest House was established by Tienie and Siena Visser and their hospitality offered an enjoyable and delightful stay to their guests over many years. As new owner Leonie is committed to maintain the standard and continue to build on the valued relationship with Albatross visitors.
Leonie has spent most of her career as travelling project manager, and having been a visitor to guest houses and hotels around the world has gained an in depth, and personal, travelling experience. She understands very well what her guests will expect to ensure a comfortable stay. This stretches from friendly personnel, fresh, clean and comfortable rooms with good quality linen and towels, not having the same for breakfast every morning, to the flexibility required to meet individual needs.
Albatross offers 4 non smoking double rooms with private entrances, each with a small kitchenette for guests who wish to keep, and prepare personal meals. For those who wish to further stay in touch DStv and Wi-fi access are available in all rooms. Laundry services and airport transfers, will be arranged on request.
Alternatively, breakfast as ordered, we can pack a lunch box for you, and will make a reservation at a restaurant of your choice for dinner. If you do not feel like stepping out for dinner we will order a take out meal, or get one of our well known West Coast chefs to prepare some serious soul food to indulge in in the comfort of the house. We also offer braai facilities in a relaxing garden setting for the visiting braai masters.
Breakfast is served in the main house where the morning papers and news are available for those guests who wish to remain in touch with world events. Wheather permits we enjoy breakfast in the garden.
Our smoking guests are accommodated on the veranda and in the garden where they can relax and enjoy the outside peace and quiet. Unfortunately Albatross is not wheel chair friendly at this stage but have already initiated upgrading to also welcome guests with wheel chair requirements in future.
