"Thatch and thorn"
We had a lovely stay over the past weekend during the SANESA nationals at KEP. Storm is a very gracious host, the rooms were beautiful and well kept, parking safe and literally at your door.
My wife and I have stayed all over SA and this is by far the best B&B/ guest house we've ever been to. The owner, Storm, is so obliging and friendly. The setting is lovely. The rooms are well appointed and better than many hotel rooms. The massive baths especially are amazing. Love it.
