The staff were very helpful as always. My case was delayed by the airline and the staff took it in and stored it for me until I returned from my safari. As always the views from the room and the breakfasts were great.

The Muize is simply lovely. It is approx 10 minute walk from Surfers corner overlooking the water. Our room (a standard one) was clean and airy and didn't get hot, with no need to put the aircon on. The bed big and soooo comfy. The B&B was quiet and I slept so well. But the best bit is the people. Nothing felt like too much trouble, including things like taking a shower at the end of our last day, long after we had checked out. Oh and breakfast. The full English was delicious and the daily fresh fruit was welcome. I'd definitely return.
