This was our first stop on a three week trip to South Africa in May. First, let me say this was a fantastic beginning to our trip. My husband and I had booked three nights. We wish at the end of our stay, that we had added on a couple more nights. This is a lovely small boutique hotel located... More

The Last Word is beautifully appointed with luxurious rooms, we were treated like royalty by the staff... More

I don't want to say too much about this hidden gem for fear of not getting a room when we return and we will be for sure! In short, a wonderful, oasis of a place to stay, and it should be kept a quiet secret! My husband and two boys aged 9 and 6 went for a 2 week holiday... More

Our flight from London arrived very early but we were invited for breakfast and our room was available so we were settled in by 9.30. Try that in your average hotel, all at no extra cost. We stayed three days at the beginning of our trip and four at the end, with a very late checkout. Two superb rooms, the... More
