The Old House Guest House Reviews
“The staff were really accommodating and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Great value for money, clean and the food was surprisingly good. Best Old House pizza! ” – Jacqueline
“I was a bit hesitant about staying in a place called “The Old House”… However, I was pleasantly surprised. Not much “old” there… there was a lot of greenery… wildlife everywhere… on our last night, we got a somewhat scary/thrilling surprise to find an elephant roaming just outside! Additionally, they arranged most of the activities for you… Definitely a place I will stay in again ” – Uyapo
“The location and overall atmosphere of the place was fantastic. The rooms are clean and comfortable and very spacious. It didn’t have a hairdryer and no TV though but not a problem. Staff very helpful. I wouldn’t swap for a lodge stay. ” – Anna
