At the end of an unpretentious street and up a hill, this came as a total surprise; a mini estate built (presumably 18th/19th century) as an Italian villa, around a central large courtyard which has a large area with tables and chairs, and an ornate Roman style swimming pool. Stylish formal dining room complete with grand piano, breakfast eaten under... More

The entrance is huge with a massive staircase leading up to a beautiful court yard with an Intalian flair all very impressive. The staff are very freandly and professional at all times especially John our waiter who served us a 3 course meal in our bedroom, running to the kitchen and back several times and always with a big smile...

The location is fantastic providing great view. Hotel is luxurious giving patrons benefit of modern luxuries and natural beauty.Dinner Menu is a bit limited, with few options to choose from. But the preparation of the meals is excellent. The service is excellent.

A beautiful Italian Villa in the Lowveld. No mention on the internet that there is 50 stairs to the hotel entrance. Relaxing next to the pool we had to ask the staff to please keep the voices down. The music was to loud, and the TV was on full volume in the background. We were given a complimentary bottle of... More

Dear Merlinda, I was made aware of the situation with your stay. We are so sorry. It seems like you had a rowdy bunch of co-guests, and on top of that you were ill as well! We do monitor the level of satisfaction with food and cleanliness, but it is of little consolation to hear that you were not one... More

Over and above the free internet in the Cocktail Lounge there would now also be paid internet in the rooms that is of great quality! (La... More

Attention to detail was impeccable and the service was top quality. I could see that all the staff valued my stay there and went out of their way to make it a home away from home. Will highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!

Stayed 3 nights in January 2015. Unusual hotel, a former Italianate private villa. But the rooms were comfortable and clean, the breakfasts and dinners very good, staff very attentive and helpful. Very relaxing and chilled - interesting touches like a coffee corner near the pool with a constant supply of free coffee/tea and cake. Nice bar area. They are building... More
