Review by Cheryl (Joburg)

Alba House was fantastic! Only wish we had stayed a bit longer. Rooms were great, friendliness and service from the host was outstanding. I can really recommend this guest house.

Review by Petr Svejkovsky (Prague)

Paarl is wonderful. I enjoy playing the 2 golf courses, Paarl Golf Club and Pearl Valley. Alba House has evrything we need to relax after a game of golf.

Review by Jiri Miksatko (Tabor, Czech Republic)

It is great to find a Czech speaking owner of the property! My english is not so great. I visit with friends nearly every year! Alba House is conveniently situated for our visits to Cape Town and other Winelands places. We enjoy the pool. Ivana took us on several tours in the Cape area, we had fun. Will be back in March.

Review by Richard Barot (Winchester, UK)

We visit South Africa for our holidays often and have stayed at Alba House numerous times. The owners John and Ivana Decker make us very welcome, always help us with holiday 'tips' in the area. We love wine, Alba House is near great wineries in Paarl. We are keen golfers, Paarl Golf Club and Pearl Valley are only a short drive away. Breakfast at Alba House is great! We love the view and the pool.

We come to South Africa for the sunshine in February. Paarl weather is hottest then, the pool and sunbathing great. Alba House every year!

Review by Gavin And Sue Masterton (London)

We stayed at Alba House for the fourth time and as always was fantastic. Great hosts , spotlessly clean , great views and first class facilities. We look forward already to our next visit ! Albe House is very well located and you can get to all the famous winaries very easily as well as only being 30 minutes from Cape Town. We would recommend it to anyone.
