Mountain View Guest House review
This was a conveniently situated guest house overlooking some of the other houses with good mountain views beyond. We were given a very pleasant room opening onto the garden, and with the heating full on found it quite comfortable (our car was iced up in the morning, and the grass white with frost, so we appreciated the heat - and the electric blankets!). We had a problem with the shower which sometimes had water, sometimes not, which was a bit awkward for us when covered in soap, and were told this was something to do with the town water supply.
As compared with Wilma at Clanwilliam, our hostess was not very helpful, and on our first night was unable to suggest anywhere for us to go for a meal. Breakfast was not as good as at the previous places, with no proper buffet and an inadequate toaster.

A very short stay here, but very welcoming and we had all that we needed.Read more about the whole trip
Mountain View Guest House
Another very comfortable and quiet guest house, serving a very good breakfast. We were welcomed by the owner with afternoon coffee and cake which was much appeciated.
The rooms were tastefully and individually decorated.
Again, having a 4 x 4 vehicle allowed us to visit Orbicule Hill, the site of some rare obicular diorite (only of interest to geologists!).
A good B and B high above the town
This was more like a hotel than a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was good and the service efficient.
Our room was excellent with views over the local countryside but others in our group were not as lucky.
