                                              We had an enjoyable stay in the Honeymoon Suite. I am not sure that all the rooms are of the same standard though. Overall very friendly service.

                                              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at De Ark Guesthouse, from the first impression of excellent service on booking and reception, to the stunningly gorgeous decor in our room and the dining room, to the gourmet dinner and breakfasts. We will recommend it highly and return at our first opportunity. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing, while the location is perfect for exploring the historical sights in the area.
