We offer braai packs, laundry service, breakfast options and much more.

Take a ferry to the beach bar, hike along the railway tracks or simply find a cosy coffee shop and people watch! 

You can also reach all the art galleries and our small museum easily by foot.

Customers reviews

The building is old and charming, the staff are very nice, familiar and helpful. We got breakfast in a beautiful old kitchen and the house is situated in a peaceful, calm, green area, walking distance to town.

Beautful home from home - the staff really care and want to make you feel totally welcome.
We had a great stay with our group - the staff even cooked us a meal for our arrival night and showed us the town. We would recommend this place for a budget stay!
