    A Great Place to Chill


    This guesthouse, loacated in the leafy eastern suburb of Somerset West, is a relaxed, friendly spot to rest up either before or after a long journey. Run by a young South African and his German wife, it boasts TV, a swimming pool for guests to use, a large terrace with a view of the mountains, and a great breakfast in the morning. My wife and I give our unqualified recommendation to this, one of the "finds" of this particular trip. It's quite easy to find, just off Somerset West's Main Road, and is only about 3 or 4 minutes' drive from the N2.

    Unique Quality: The best thing about Ballyna House was David and Silke, the owners and hosts. They made certain that everyone felt absolutely at home. Our first evening there, we sat round a table on the terrace chatting for at least a couple hours, which doesn't often happen in B&B's anywhere -- though it's not that uncommon in South Africa, I must confess. They helped us get our bearings in town, sort out a problem with our rental car firm, and suggested numerous things for us to do in the area. We'll not soon forget their warmth and their hospitality.
