My wife’s bridal party arranged for a high tea at this establishment. They called on the day, attempting to cancel. After an inconvenient hassle, they reluctantly “allowed” the high tea to continue. Their excuse was that they had staffing problems. I am of the opinion that it is not the customer’s problem. The food and cake were palatable but the... More

It's a nice hotel, but very small, just a couple of rooms, a very small pool, no spa, no gym. We considered it like a bed and breakfast. The bellboys were the waiters, and we never got to see any other staff or manager. Food was very good. Great big rooms and bathrooms. Price paid was high for what we... More

Had a v enjoyable stay in this v scenic hotel. Staff were v friendly and helpful. We had dinner one evening and was probably the best t-bone steak we ever had. One of the best hotels we've stayed in for hospitality. Complements to Sheri, Mike and staff.

Very nice truelly a boutique hotel, very confartable room, dedicated service very good location. Breackfast is good, and they have a very acceptable restaurant. On the minus side it is quite expensive compared to Pretoria hotels. Will be back for sure

We stayed here for our first night in South Africa on our honeymoon. It was a complementary stay as part of our trip on the Blue Train the following day. The stay started off shakily with the hotel having no knowledge of our booking. We had just landed after an overnight flight and were looking forward to showering and having... More

I was blown away by the friendliness of the greeting which went onto to include the entire team including Sheri and Mike (the owners) I was also impressed by the large choice on their Italian dinner menu. Their Bolognese sauce is delightful with the home made pasta. Their wine cellar filled with great wines. I am heading back there. Only... More
