What a superb mountain venue for a wedding! 5*. Been there over 6 times. Then came the dinner... No! No! Top marks to waiters... but a dismal Friday wedding-dinner crashed my elated opinion of this Magaliesberg Mountain retreat. You betrayed the bride who worked tirelessly to make her wedding a success.

This is such a fantastic place to stay! The staff were incredible, we arrived late at night but they still sent someone to find us so we could follow them back in our car.
