Reviews from previous Nick’s Place guests
“We were two families of 4, travelling back from our coastal holiday to Johannesburg and thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay with Nick and Fabrice. Both are delightful hosts, providing a very charming and appointed house, serving a diverse and very tasty menu in their restaurant, with largely local-sourced ingredients. We were sorry not to be staying longer to enjoy more of their menu which they were happy to adjust to our taste and the kid’s palates. The rooms have every comfort (TV, Aircon, real coffee) with noticeable and appreciatively soft, high-thread count cotton bedding, all of which is laundered and ironed daily. We also enjoyed their two very friendly dogs, Josephine (Great Dane) and George the Weimaraner. While we were all accommodated in the house, there is a separate cottage for families with younger kids and or dogs who may find Josephine and George less friendly. Next time we’re travelling down to the coast, we will most certainly be staying at Nick’s Place again,” wrote MKS on their TripAdvisor page.
