    Fabulous

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff; very warm welcome; very good breakfast; attention to detail - the fruit, fresh milk and biscuits in our room and beautifully set breakfast table on the terrace, for instance; a real sense of well-being.

    Absolutely everything! What a gem of a find this guest house was. We were treated like royalty and we almost forgot we were in South Africa and not Scotland. The house itself was filled w/flowers and china, lovely artwork and tastefully decorated rooms, that were both comfortable and pleasing to the eye. The gardens were a delight and the Langeberg Mountains enticed one for a hike in nature or a walk into town,( for a gourmet dinner at one of many quaint restaurants). This is a special place that can be enjoyed at any season. And did I mention the breakfasts? Oh my... On a three week trip of S.A. this was my favorite stay by far!

    That we had to leave.

    Fabulous

    The host is delightful: friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. On arrival, we were given tea and cake in the comfortable drawing room and made to feel at home. The house is an elegant Edwardian villa, with lots of period features and big, light-filled rooms. Breakfast was outstanding, served at your leisure on the spacious verandah that overlooks a much-loved garden. There are great hikes and trails locally to enjoy, including the Bontebok Nature Reserve. On our host's recommendation, we tried two local restuarants; one was good, the other outstanding. We would happily stay here again.

    Nothing significant. In our room, having a shower room behind a curtain wouldn't give everyone the privacy they might like.

    We stayed at the Braeside Guest house for 1 night at the end of a 2 week holiday. The house itself was old, large and grand with beautiful gardens. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and Fiona went out of her way to make us feel welcome, making a dinner reservation & helping us phone the ailine to sort out a problem with our return flight the next day. The lovely breakfast was outside on the balcony with fruit, cereals, meats & cheese followed by a full cooked breakfast & toast. The whole place felt calming and relaxing and I had my first full nights sleep in 2 weeks of travelling - pure bliss!

    A colonial style building that still exudes opulence and grandeur. The building and grounds are well maintained and satisfying customer needs and expectations is very evident. Rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast (to suit all tastes) was served on the balcony with the early morning sun shining and the mountains providing a splendid backdrop what better way to start the day.

    I can't begin to describe what a pleasure it was for my husband and I to stay at Braeside Guest House. We loved the house, built in 1901, each room beautifully furnished to the period with a wide verandah outside where tables were laid for breakfast. The attention to detail by Fiona in every department is outstanding. We were offered tea as soon as we arrived, had complimentary beers in the fridge plus fruit and biscuits on the side. Fresh flowers were on a table. Pool towels as well as fluffy bath, face and hand towels were available and around the pool were placed a selection of loungers, chairs and tables, some in shade, some in sun. The breakfast tables were beautifully laid and the quality of the breakfast which included hot muffins was exceptional.

    Fiona the hostess & partner was superb, the Breakfasts 5 star plus. The room was large and bathroom also.As an older victorian property of course parts of it do need a bit more maintenance and upgrade but all in all it was excellent.
