After driving Route 62 from Franschoek we arrived at Thorntree to find a green oasis.
We parked the car and as we opened the doors one of the staff came out to us and welcomed us in a wonderfully friendly way. Once inside the owner Louis joined us adding his welcome and setting the scene for a good stay.
Our room was spacious and well furnished, bathroom was large and modern with bath and shower and we had a small sitting area outside the room looking over the garden.
The grounds are beautifully kept spacious gardens with lawns, trellises, rose beds, shrubs and two swimming pools in separate areas.
Dinner was great fun - a 3 course meal with a limited selection of main dishes including local ostrich, but all well cooked and served. Wines were excellent value and a good selection including from the local area. We ate on both nights of our stay.
Breakfast was excellent and included a full English dish of Bacon, eggs etc.
Each morning when we got to our car we found it had been washed - what a pleasant surprise!
Louis and his staff were always there to make your stay as good as possible - they are a wonderful team.
