hi-tech room automation

theLAB room automation system is the star of your stay in our guest houses and is incorporated into each of our modern, minimalistic-styled rooms.

Each of our locations provides some fun tech – whether it’s a Hololens or Jibo watiting to meet you at reception.

Facial recognition and gesture control applications are being developed and implemented : no other hotel chain iin the world incorporates these yet. We truly are leading the way in 21st century hospitality!

While we have theLAB Switch with pre-programmed scenarios to “Wake me up” / “Start my day”/ “Go to sleep” / “Go to bed”, you can have fun and ask theLAB room atuomation system by voice command to:

  • “make me a coffee”
  • "start the jacuzzi"
  • “turn on the TV”
  • “close the blinds”
  • “start the shower”
  • “set the alarm”
  • “lights blue”
  • “turn off the lights”...

located in amazing locations along the beautiful Garden Route

Centered along the beautiful interior part of the Garden Route in the Western Cape, South Africa, our guest houses offer a modern feel with hi-tech and eco-centered standard, and spa facilities.

From the buzz of our Cape Town capital, to the foodie and wine capital of Franschhoek, to out-of-town country and spa retreat in Robertson, each location offers something different from the previous.

Each offers a unique experience, and you will be captivated by the charm of each of them in turn.

Soon, you will be able to hire an electric car from us and drive between our various guest house locations...we offer something current and totally unique in the guest house industry: keep watching this space!

warm South African hospitality

Our reviews speak for themselves! We offer something totally unique, but still carry that personal touch you’d expect.

Each of our locations has an in-house chef and offers dining experiences from simple, social home-cooked meals, to rustic French-inspired food. Pair it with a beer on tap, or wine from a keg or wine rack!
