Verified reviewexcellent

Even though we have only stayed 2x one night we really enjoyed our stay at the Donkin Country House. It was our first time to Beaufort West on our way to CT but what a lovely people. I'll give the restaurant 5 stars. Their food is like home (and believe me, we like our food if home cooked) We have never eaten so lovely in a restaurant. the atmosphere is great. It takes you back to the 50 years. We will recommend to anyone if they are in Beaufort West to spend the night there and have breakfast and dinner at the B&B. We will be back sometimes when we visit SA again. Thanks for making our stay comfortable. Best regards Michael and Inger Visser (Holland)
