We have B & B’s all over, but the people that interact with you make the difference! This is what makes me enjoy The Cottage.  Wessel (Tug) starts my day!

Guest from Hong Kong:

Cozy room, tasty breakfast, convenient location, reasonable price, and the most importantly, a nice host. The room is beautifully decorated with everything you need including tea bag, heater and towel, yet the price is absolutely affordable. The host is really friendly and shared a lot of tips for living in Jo’burg and recommended lots of place to go. The time in The Cottage is definitely one of the most unforgettable experience in my journey to South Africa.

Guest from England:

My friend Spencer and I spent one night at the cottage on our way to Victoria falls. Jeanne was very easy to contact beforehand and made all aspects of our stay extremely comfortable. We were even welcomed to dinner with her and her husband. A very positive first experience thank you Jeanne

Dankie Jeanne  vir die wonderlike week wat ons by julle kon deurbring.  Dit was waarlik “home from home” en ons sal verseker weer kom as ons opleiding in Midrand doen.

Guest from Paris, France:

The housing was just as expected as advertised on the website.  The breakfast was delightful and the organisation of transport is perfect. Karl had one very good stay at The Cottage and was well welcomed by the family. Thank you to Jeanne.

Guests from Namibia:

A wonderful experience, lovely spacious room and peaceful stay.  We will surely be back.

Guest from Port Elizabeth:

When you travel a great deal, small, thoughtful touches and obvious good guest relations become more noticeable and more important. The chef at this guesthouse is exceptional in this regard and has just the right touch when discerning whether or not a guest wants company or conversation. I found the WiFi excellent. The administration of the booking and invoices etc also reveals the leaning toward excellence, which helps to save time & energy
