After reading the vastly contradicting reviews about this establishment, my curiosity was piqued and I decided to overnight there out of season. My husband and I went in with very few expectations since we were interested in the quality of service we could expect since we considered the rates (inclusive of dinner and breakfast) to be low in comparison to other establishments.
The service we received was typical of a country hotel and if you expected the usual luxuries associated with hotels, you'll be disappointed. Our room and en-suite bathroom were dated, and some items had been well used and could be replaced (yes, that shower curtain) but importantly everything was clean.
Then when it came to meals we found the dinner to be satisfactory and the portions decent- sized. A substantial breakfast was served on the enclosed patio with a river view.
All in all, I felt I got value for money and would definitely return there as this is one of the more affordable places in this scenic part of the Breede River.
