NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

A great bonus - especially at Christmas time, thank you Sleeping-Out.
- Theresa Dold

Very pleasant, well located- will come back! Only complaints were there are a lot of ants, and housekeeping forgot to bring us enough towels! Fantastic place though with very friendly staff!

Excellent value for money

It was a great pleasure to stay at Ginnegaap, we really had a fabulous time, everything was just fine. Great value for my money.
- Rachelle Brandt

Highly recommended. The room had a high specification with lots of extra touches. The location was quiet and the breakfast was 5 Star. The owners and all the staff were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way with help and advise during our stay.
