Have stayed here several times. This is a beautiful & peaceful location on top of the Zuurberg Mountains with lovely gardens in which to stroll or sit and read a book.
The Hotel has been rebuilt & renovated as it was badly damaged in a Bush fire in Aug 2008. The new rooms are superb with excellent decor and lots of space. Very spacious shower & also an outside private shower!!! The very helpful & friendly staff also showed me the 5 family rooms situated in the main building which are also superb.
As usual the food is brilliant and it's nice to have breakfast on the new verandah overlooking the swimming pool.
The morning & afternoon Game Drives into the nearby Addo Elephant Park are well worth taking as the Hotel guides are extremely knowledgeable and you get a better view from the open Landrovers rather than a car. Lots of animals & I was lucky to see Lions!!!
Lots of other activities such as Elephant riding, Hiking trails, horse riding can be arranged by the hotel and all are worth doing.
If you go for a short walk along the road you will probably be joined by the hotel dogs who are spoiled by all the guests.
But my favourite thing to do is sitting on the front stoep, drink in hand watching the awesome sunset before dinner and sitting by the huge fire with coffee & a liquer afterwards.
This is a gem of a place and you should stay for more than one night as there is so much to do.
