The decor was beautiful,calm and relaxing and we had a beautiful view over the lake. The staff was friendly and eager to help us. The security at this... More

Excellent service, friendly and good atmosphere. Friendly staff and very helpful. The location is excellent and parking is very good and safe. Maybe the bathroom needs an extractor fan would help especially in winter times

The hotel is very well taken care of. It seems that the owners and the staff really enjoy working there. Everyone was very polite and willing to help. The rooms are spacious. The lobby area which includes the restaurant and the bar is very beautiful. The outside area with pool and the chess as well. Great place for the summer.

Stayed here with a friend as one of our stops along the Garden Route. When we arrived the power was out so we had to manage in the dark. What we understood is that load shedding is quite a common occurrence in SA so I would have expected a little bit more by way of emergency lamps etc. The room... More

Modern and appealing public areas with good dinner and breakfast fare. Apartment-style rooms are well appointed but we were cold until we got under the nice heavy bed cover. Needs an electric heater in winter as aircon only gets slightly warm

Modern interior - beautiful. Restaurant : superb service and good quality food. Our rooms were regretfully not cleaned properly. Had to call housekeeping to re do the floors as well as bathrooms. It looked disgusting.

Enjoyed a pleasant overnight stay in the one bedroom suite. Excellent room fitment and plenty of space. Didn't test out the restaurant but looks well appointed. Pleasant location away from the town centre
