No consistency with room service - first night soup was served with 3 breadrolls and butter, next night 2 breadrolls and no butter. Complained about litter that we could see from our room - was...

Magoebaskloof is one of my favourite places in South Africa and it would not be the same without the Magoebaskloof Hotel. As it is not on the official "Tourist Route", it is difficult to get Clients to agree to let me take them there. Never have I had a Client complain or express disapointment at having been there.
