However the frogs at night made my life hell, they kept competing for the loudest noise and I couldn't sleep well as I am a light sleeper. The conference... More

From the moment I walked into the reception area I felt I had arrived somewhere where my presence as a guest mattered. I stayed in the beautifully appointed 5-star Village on the far side of the par 3 Fairview golf course. The tastefully decorated suite offers wonderful luxury extras like an espresso machine, electric blanket as well as a private... More

It was perfect for my business trip, overall service and the restaurant experience great. I found that the bed was too short for me (albeit I'm over 6foot) & it was the budget room :) with beautiful gardens.
