A lovely place to settle after a long journey ... brilliant value and great hosts. We were meet by John and his family who chatted to us for a bit, then seeing that we were tired, left us to settle in. We loved their hospitality and open arm welcome. Not totally self catering as…

They seem nice but I only met them for a second. There is a baby in the house that doesn't sleep through the night. The area was perfect for me but I only stayed two nights of the 5 because I couldn't sleep with the noise.

Response from John:
Hi Brittany, another guest is visiting in the room next to yours for fertility treatment and has a 1 year old. So sorry you were disturbed, we didn't hear a thing... It would have been wonderful if you'd taken the time to speak to us, so you could have talked through any difficulties you had. We tried knocking once when you were in but had no response, and never saw you again. We understand that you'd made alternative accommodation arrangements with your friend down the road, and think you were somewhat upset at not being able to cancel your accommodation last minute. Our policy is that within 5 days of check in, there's a 100% cancelation fee. We did happily reduce the nights stay and reduce the costs for you. Hope greatly, however, if you're ever in the area again that you'll pop in for a cup of tea with us so that we have the opportunity to connect and get to know you.

I'm a ceramic artist and well-known Cape Town figure - the rooms in my B&B are named after some of the giants in the pottery world, upon which my dwarf-self now stands. I'm also known for being an inventor. It's my joy and pleasure to create space for visitors to my gallery, …
