We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend and it went beyond expectations! The staff were just wonderful - you felt so so cared for and about, to ensure you had the best possible time. I really couldn't recommend Rukman and his team from both The Sun House and The Dutch House highly enough!

The Sun House is a special place to stay. It's like staying at a private villa in colonial times. So spacious and relaxing. The food is excellent & the staff happy to do whatever you ask as well as offering what you might like.

Lovely hotel with excellent dining. Room comfortable but could do with a refrigerator. Staff outstanding.

Very good 8.0
Lovely colonial boutique hotel
Old colonial home that is deceiving when you arrive at the gate up a residential road. Beautiful interior, secluded, excellent service and very good food. Beautiful small pool in private garden. Dinner on the verandah was a highlight. 10-15 mins walk to the fort and the old town. Steep on price for the facilities on offer compared with other places we have stayed so far on our trip. But you will not regret staying there.
