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.

Guest Comments

Friendly establishment with a hands-on manageress who took a great deal of time to chat to us and give us helpful tips. Her response to all our enquiries showed knowledge of her establishment and a willingness to make the effort to make our stay pleasant. Warm, cosy rooms. I understand that a TV will be placed in each room (in the slave quarters room which is great for those winter getaways). I would however have appreciated a shower rather than a bath and a wonderful fireplace in the room or lounge area in the slave quarters as this is a wonderful winter retreat. A minor problem was sorted out quickly and efficiently.Thank you to all the staff at Jan Harmsgat.
