The staff were very accomodating, rooms were lovely and clean, the lodges were secluded and felt more like your own little getaway as opposed to part... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in May and enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Excellent service, beautiful rooms, great food and stunning views. Thank you to Kerri and Sarah for their personal touches. Brilliant value for money - ridiculously cheap for what you get.

From your arrival, you feel like a VIP! Staff is friendly, efficient but discreetly in the background. The rooms are top class, with all the little extras you would expect and more. Even a hot water bottle finds its way into your bed for the cold Cape winter nights.(And cold feet!) You can really loose yourself in time and relax!... More

We celebrated our sister's 70th Birthday in this beautiful historic homestead. Excellent food paired with attentive staff made this occasion memorable. They looked after all eleven adults and four children very well and June was serenaded by a guitar playing staff member! Very touching. Thank you to all .

The breakfast was amazing. they have a fresh garden. The mocha tasted and looked like it came from a coffee shop. The staff was excellent. Food was superb. Homemade Treats were tasty. The bridge was cute and so was my bunker. Great sauna. I love this hotel. One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. Excellence!!

We ended out safari and Garden route trip with 4 nights here. It is so different from the normal modern hotel. It is based around an old 'Colonial' style house set in beautiful grounds, and is extremely private. There are two other accommodation area and we walked over a rope bridge to get to our wonderfully equipped suite. Excellent touches... More
