We booked at de Denne based on the reviews from other travelers - so were really looking forward to our stay and had high expectations. Because we were traveling with our 9 month old baby we also specifically chose de Denne because of its self catering cottages. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and the location is lovely - with a great farm feeling. Lots of grass to relax on which is great with kids. We were shown to our room and sort of surprised that a. The kitchen was tiny just one shelf really with no space to put anything and b. there was no table and chairs to eat on (not inside or outside) we settled ourselves and made the best of it. at about 5pm we were offered to be moved ( we didn't complain - they just came to us ) to another cottage with 2 bedrooms. This cottage was bigger and better for us but as far as self catering both units really fell short. The first unit only had one glass ( instead of 2) and the bathroom door didn't close properly. The kitchen is far too small - no space to chop an onion if need be. The second unit had a microwave whose cord didn't reach the plug point, no braai tongs or sharp knife. The furniture was very outdated and the towels were very thin and hard. The tv was an old style tv ( not a flat screen) which is not a problem but no attempt was made to hide the Cables hanging from the plug point - looked really untidy. This is not my idea of 4 star. So in short it's just really the cottages facilities that let this place down.
