Verified reviewvery good

We stayed with three spaniels and We are made to feel very welcome . The dogs were allowed to run around ( under supervision) It was a very hot day and load shedding was affecting their water supply but every possible way of making our stay comfortable was seen to . We left after a wonderful breakfast . A good find.

Pleasantly Surprised! What a little gem. It was just what we needed for our one night stop over. It is also pet friendly which is a huge bonus. Adine is a superb hostess went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Many Thanks!
