Our son and daughter booked us a night here as a special treat (an anniversary present)during a holiday in South Africa and it was absolutely fantastic!
We had the Gelatenheid guest house which was beautiful and very indulgent. It has its own pool and garden, an outdoor bath tub on the balcony (as well as an indoor tub and bathroom!) and huge amounts of space. As well as being very luxurious there were lots of very thoughtful detailed touches such as matches where there were candles, a well stocked drinks fridge and a mobile phone with local numbers (restaurants etc) pre-programmed.
To top off the treat of staying here we ate that night in the tasting room at Le Quartier Francais (absolutely superb).
Our only regret was that we were only there for one night. Katherine and the staff we met were lovely and it was a highlight of the holiday.
