Probably the best hotel review i got from my guests (42 pax), this May, it is a quite & elegant place to stay on the garden route. For exclusivity, prefer to stay in a villa overlooking the canal. Nicely furnished rooms and very good & courteous staff.

The hotel is out of town which offers more quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Situated close to Leisure Isle. Within walling distance to Bouson's pub which is also well worth a visit. Beautiful and spacious rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Big tv in room

We visited as two families and were pleased to find that we had very spacious suites which comfortably accommodated us all. The receptionist was really helpful. The hotel was very quiet when we stayed but looked well set up for busier times.
