I don’t want to give you some embellished fluff. Here it is something short but genuine. Compared with North American or European prices, the Roundhouse offers fantastic value for the money. This glamorous website doesn’t set up the visitor for a disappointment ... the real thing matches the pictures. Management has welcomed me with a genuine smile. I loved it.

Laura & Ian (Ireland)

What a beautifully designed building. So quite and peaceful. We had a fabulous night sleep. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff very friendly and helpful.  

Simipiwe & Crystalynne (Cape Town)  
 
Really impressive from the outside even more so inside. Beautiful rooms and views with comfy beds, we felt right at home. Will definitely be back.

Eric & Ana (Spain)    

Amazing guesthouse, great place for whale watching and the perfect breakfast. Thank you all

Corey & Allen (USA)

Ralf, Renate & Raja Fuguer   

That is such a fantastic house, an amazing view and very nice and warm hosts and helpers! Even if it was a short stay, we loved to be here and enjoy that beauty. (I loved the interior design of the rooms and the construction of the house!)
