The pictures on the website do it more justice, on the website it is mentioned that a full English breakfast will be served, this was not provided, rather a small selection of cereals where offered, which is misleading information, overall i would say it is a beautiful place to get away but make sure the information on the website is accurate to what is offered. Especially considering the price.

I came to African Queen to have a relaxing weekend, and I certainly did! Noordhoek is stunning and the guesthouse is well-positioned to take advantage of the beauty and give a good base for exploration. Bram and Margaux are wonderful hosts and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable.

We were from december to january in the garden cottage and it was just a dream. The African Queen Guesthouse is a very beautiful place. The hosts Margeaux and Braam are absolutly wonderful. You can have a lovely breakfast and dinner as well. The guesthouse is a good starting point to explore the amazing cape and its great landscape. And for a sundowner just step out on the terrace and enjoy the view over wetlands to the ocean. We will come back for sure. Thank you again! Adeline, Jrn and Viviane

Wow .... That was the thought that sprang to mind after staying at the African Queen B&B. Margaux and Bram were wonderful. The breakfast was excellent. What impressed me as well, was the attention to detail to the decor. What a stunning place to stay. To top it all, our hosts were unbelievably friendly. They really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. A home away from home. Clich I know, but it's true. - Lynette
