Guest Comments

We really enjoyed staying at De Ark. The views are amazing, the food and service great. Miguel has got his hand on every aspect and really went that extra mile to make our stay great.

Good day we enjoyed our stay there, however did find the mattress a little soft, and the one night used the fire place to find we were getting smoked out, apart from that it was lovely. Friendly staff and nice welcome.

The usual problem as at most guest houses. There were sufficient plug points, but very poor light in the bedroom especially at the mirror. How do you dry your hair, do your make-up without being able to see yourself properly?. The one bedside lamp was broken. The dinner and breakfast were good and reasonably priced.There should have been a warning about the long, steep gravel road especially in the rain. Damage to a decent sedan car can dampen the spirit of a pleasant stay.
