What a disappointment. Did not feel homely at all and the Lady who assisted was so unfriendly. Did not even mentioned that they do serve breakfast. Only told us about the Restaurant up the road for dinner. which was great and worth going to. Room was not up to standard at all and the bathroom with shower not very clean and towels very hard and room quite smelly. Such a shame as it was not up to standard at all as advertised. and far from what is being advertised. Will not make use of them again.

Thank you for a lovely stay, the beautiful fresh linen, the great "beskuit"! We felt so at home. If you ever pass our way in France, stop by!

Beautifully furnished, spacious rooms with spotlessly clean bathrooms. Within walking distance of great restaurants. Perfect for an overnight stop.

Fantasties, ons was in die "Butterfly Cottage" en my ma was gaande oor die antieke meubels. Mike & Hettie baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid en die ontbyt die volgende oggend voor ons die langpad verder geneem het Kaap toe. Ons sal beslis weer daar oorslaap.

Stayed on 01/05/2011. Hennie made me feel very unwelcome. He stated in no uncertain terms that my trailer was not welcome. Will never stay at the this establishment again as long as the unfriendly Hennie mans the reception desk.

We spent a night at The Lighthouse House on our way up to the Drakensberg on the 18 June 2010. We were very comfortable in the Family Room. The room was well heated. It would have been nice if there had been an electric blanket on my son's bed as well - as it was a freezing cold night! But we would certainly recommend The Lighthouse and would stay there ourselves again. Thank you so much. Val, Richard & Nathaniel Francis AMBLESIDE HOUSE Cape Town
