Budget Getaways Review
Thinking of a chilled night or two in the heart of McGregor? Gentle strolls around the village, punctuated by regular caffeine stop-offs, slow rides on sleepy country roads, well-deserved afternoon siestas, visits to local wine farms?
Le Bonheur offers a comfortable base to these challenging weekend rigours - a neat guesthouse with two private suites for couples, called Moonglow and Starlight, and a large garden, to boot.
Moonglow is attached to the main house, with it’s own private entrance, while Starlight is independent.
The two suites are similar in layout and decor, with each sporting an ensuite bedroom with brass Queen bed, shower and extra large bath. A compact sitting area spills onto a private terrace.
Stepping into the garden, a swimming pool forms the centrepiece - in summer, little question where you'll be spending a chunk of your time.
Light continental breakfast is an optional extra at Le Bonheur - this is served in the main house. Alternatively, the village has plenty in the way of good spots for a hearty tuck-in.
Turning to the rates, we're looking at around R800 per suite during the week (bed only), R990 on weekends.
The guest feedback looks good. “What a lovely night's stay - excellent room with such thought having gone into all the extra attention to detail, care and warmth.”
All in all, if it's hassle-free, simple elegance and comfort you're after, we'd say there's plenty of all three to be found at Le Bonheur.
