Birthday weekend”

I surprised my wife with an in-town birthday weekend getaway. What a wonderful choice Gooseberry guesthouse has been. Connie greeted made us feel welcome from the first second and we enjoyed every moment in this beautiful place with its stunning art and little surprises. We enjoyed dinner at one of the many quaint little restaurants within walking distance but mostly just soaked up this stunning place.

Art Gallery! ”

That Magenta/Pink Room No. 10! Was in love with it, sadly it's no more there as they did a paint job 😥. In fact when we came last week some construction work was still going on, no wonder the patio area was a bit untidy and dusty. Anyway, the rooms were still looking pretty (tho all the colorful ones are completely gone), clean and neat. The house is very beautiful and big, with colorful sofas and wooden furniture, and decorated with beautiful paintings by the owner herself, Susan Berry. In short, staying there is like visiting an art gallery at the same time. What a nice feeling, indeed... 💞

Disappointed”

First stay was on a grand old room with a lovely bed. Second stay was disappointing to say the least. Bed was only a double and I am six foot tall. The room was tiny and very tired. Bathroom fixtures were water damaged and need replacement. To charge the phone we had to crawl under the stand in the room. Billed as bed and breakfast but we had to pay for breakfast. The staff were delightful but we did not see the owner at all on the second visit. It appears that the staff have been left to deal with guests.

Their advertising goes: "free wifi and breakfast", which infers the breakfast is free, but the breakfast isn't FREE, it costs 75 rand. The internet can only be used downstairs, it is too weak to get it in the upstairs room. Aside from that the lady in charge was friendly enough ...
