Verified reviewexcellent

Unfortunately we only spent one night at the Brown Jug, we were passing through on our way to Cape Town on hindsite we would have loved to spend our Cape Town week with them. Louise & her husband were fantastic hosts. Their breakfast was better than we had in 5 Star accommodation in Plettenberbay. A home from home. Can definately recommend.
