We stayed one night at Braeside and were sorry that we were not able to stay longer in this lovely house to enjoy more of Marianna and Nico's wonderful hospitality. The standard of service was exceptional and the best we received during our two week stay in South Africa. It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into making the rooms as comfortable as possible and we particularly appreciated the delicious breakfast after a great night's sleep! We also discovered that our car had been washed which came as an unexpected surprise - another indication of the attention to detail which makes Braeside stand out in terms of customer service.
We wish the new owners every success going forward. We think that they have a winning formula and we look forward to making a return visit one day!
