We thoroughly enjoy our stay, in a lovely room and a friendly and clean environment. Owners are very friendly and we wish them well in the future.

Thank you for the most welcome supper. And for the fire in the lounge and dining area. We hope that you have really great family get-together later this year. We know what it is like to have family scattered around the world. Best wishes.

Avoid at all cost.

Travelled with 3 family couples. Booked self-catering (1 family unit plus 1 bachelor unit). On arrival, we were shown 2 rooms inside the house plus a bachelor unit, all with a toilet and shower built into the room in full view of the beds. Horrific. The manager lied to us about the family unit being damaged. Yet we saw a student conserve in occupation. There was no self-catering to speak of. Filthy braai and a hostess that hovered in our private space all the time.

Baie aangename verblyf in 'n pragtige plattelandse dorpie.

Kamer was pragtig en skoon, gasheers was baie hulpvaardig met die reël van ons braai. Baie vriendelike en hulpvaardige mense wat die B&B bedryf.

Gemaklik en groot met basiese benodighede in 'n rustige tuin-omgewing en goeie gasvrou wat uitstekende kos maak.

Die kamer (een van die buitekamers) was baie basies maar het voldoen aan al die nodige behoeftes. Die beste deel is dat mens heerlike tuisgemaakte maaltye daar kan eet in die groot mooi ou huis. Die gasheer en gasvrou is uitstekend en baie behulpsaam.

Comfortable and large with basic necessities in a peaceful garden setting and good hostess who makes excellent food.

The room (one of the outside rooms) was very basic but met all the necessary needs. The best part is that you can eat delicious home-cooked meals there in the big beautiful old house. The host and hostess are excellent and very helpful.

Ou wêreldse sjarme met egte Suid-Afrikaanse gasvryheid.

Dit was 'n wonderlike ervaring, die ou sandsteen huis, met die ou meubels en plattelandse rustigheid. Gasvryheid is van die beste, kamers is ruim en eie badkamertjie met gesamentlike kombuisie. Baie rustige buurt. Ons beveel die Van Zyls se bed en breakfast aan vir almal wat 'n rustige verblyf soek. Ontbyt is baie lekker en volledig. Dit is die klein ekstras wat dit die moeite werd maak.

Old-world charm with true South African hospitality.

It was a wonderful experience, the old sandstone home, with the old furniture and the countryside's peace. Hospitality is some of the best, rooms are spacious and you have your own bathroom with a communal kitchenette. Very peaceful neighbourhood. We recommend the Van Zyl's B&B to anyone looking for peaceful accommodation. Breakfast is very nice and complete. It is the small extras that make it worth it.
