"I loved staying here. The owner took me to Soweto nightclubs and bars, next to Nelson Mandela's home and organised a visit to Orange Farm where people were peaceful and friendly although impoverished.
My room was comfortable and clean, as was the swimming pool and other facilities.
Highly recommended."

Stella Small, St. Cyrus, Scotland

"I have always wanted to find the real South Africa where black and white live in harmony. Daphne’s place is a dream come true"
