Positive Reviews

A serene location, yet not too far from the city

Guests are generally charmed by the guest house's location in Constantia Valley, noting the spectacular views of the mountains across the property's nicely landscaped gardens. Many enjoy a healthy walk to the Groot Constantia vineyard or through the nature reserve, yet also note that the highway is easily accessible for speedy trips into the city centre, waterfront, or the beaches, all of which are within a 20-30 minute drive.

Warm and welcoming hosts

Guests often describe the owners of the property as very kind, friendly, and hospitable, commenting that they cheerfully go the "extra mile" when providing assistance with sightseeing plans and restaurant reservations. Travellers also send many compliments to the chef on the varied and delicious breakfast menu.

Beautiful rooms with a pool

The guest rooms are widely described as beautiful and spotlessly clean, with very comfortable beds and strong Wi-Fi. The gardens, pool, and patio area also receive high marks from happy guests, who comment that all are very well maintained and inviting places in which to relax.

Negative Reviews

A hot night in Constantia Valley

The property is equipped with ceiling fans, though a few travellers have wished for air conditioning on very warm nights.

Size matters

Room sizes vary here.Some are described as comfortably spacious and others as a little too tight for more than one guest, especially when luggage is factored in.
