We were on a 17 day tour of S/Africa staying in several hotels. This hotel is outstanding with the level of Service and food the best I have experianced in 40 years (personal & business) travelling.
This is attributed to the Manager Mr Chris Duncan who is so hands on, starting at 5.30am in the restaurant finishing around 10pm befor helping in the bar lounge untill the last guest retires. The staff absolutely love him and all work very very hard to support him and as Guests, we receive the benefit. As a former Chef he knows excactly how the food should be prepared and presented and is always bussing around the restaurant ensuring plates cleaned away, buffet food always topped up, hot and available. At 5.30pm he will take guests on a tour of the gardens, identiyfying any unusual animals/birds. A Spotted Eagle Owl nesting in one of the Trees was a new experiance for many of us.
The rooms are huge and spotlessly clean with most rooms having a lounge and kitchenet,TV in both lounge and bedroom. Even the WiFi is free for the first 30 mins (all other hotels on our journey charged). As and example, a particular wine that I wanted was out of stock. The next day delivery failed to supply, so he went to the local supermarket in his car to obtain fresh stock and this was a £8 bottle of wine !!!!!!. You will not be dissapionted.
