What a beautiful place with such a rich history.Part of the house is a museum with lovely historic furniture and decor.We enjoyed a late breakfast (for lunch) and they were more than willing to accommodate us. I had their bobotie. It was also a good choice.We both enjoyed their ice coffee, in the 38 degree heat.Friendly staff and excellent service.

Welcoming environment, the antique nature is great. Staff friendly. Breakfast time is the greatest time... The taste of fresh sheep liver was out of this world.
