You have your opinion on every bad review. A tip for you: maybe it's a good idea to see how your attitude comes across to other people ..

How anyone with such anti-social/social awkwardness can run a guest house is beyond me. The man of that house is hugely problematic (seemingly if you're not a white and also a foreign tourist). The place itself is not too shabby but certainly nothing to write home about.

Tidy and neat room with access to the swimming pool area. The garden around the pool is nicely kept. Ian and Jenny make sure that your stay over is enjoyable experience. In the kitchen Jenny is a whiz and I really enjoyed what ever is available from the menu.

Stayed here for one night during a road trip through sa. Great location and a helpful host. The door of the room was a little hard to close because of wrapping of the woodwork. And the driveway was very steap. Other then that it was a good place to stay. The room was tidy, clean and well equipped.
