What a place! We were warmly welcomed by the manager, who gave us a tour of the Manor, and a history of the place and it's people as we walked around. We were given Marlon as our room, which was lovely. A bit later, however, we were moved to the Karen Blixen Suite, as there were not many guests, and they thought we would appreciate the extra space and luxury (we certainly did!). The food was first class, and dinner in the wonderful old dining room with the other guests was wonderful. The service and staff were excellent.
All that said, I would have slept in a tin hut and dined on bread and water to enjoy the interaction that we had with the giraffes. The chance to get so close to these wonderful, gentle and beautiful creatures is what this is all about- the rest is just icing on the cake.
It's not cheap, but worth every penny- we will be going back for more than one night next time.
Thanks to everyone there for treating us with such courtesy and friendliness.
