All you can expect from a Relais & Chateau retreat - exceptional meals (and endless, including a great high tea!), awesome rooms, large bathrooms with decadent products, excellent service and friendly faces everywhere. I liked the sharp attention to detail everywhere: interesting art, watercolour paints, brushes and paper for the inspired guest in the room, a good selection of books in the library. We went on the Bushman Painting trail - a short drive and walk - and found it really astounding. Our guide was most informative and vast knowledge of plants and birds in the area. The flora is amazing - more than 750 species. Walking really is the way to appreciate this place, and we went on a short (about one and a half hours) circular walk that was lovely.
I do think that this is probably one of the places I've stayed that has offered the best value for money. Very decadent and extremely beautiful - a perfect combination!
