Although there is a bit of maintenance to be done, the junior suites are smashing. Large bed, sitting area in and outside, large bad and double shower and not to forget a comfortable dressing. The golfcourse has improved since our last visit in 2015, but still the fairways are not good enough not to place the ball. Greens are in...

Enjoyed the trip and had lots of fun with friends. Very hot, but the pool was there to cool us off. The golf course was very dry, but the greens were relatively well maintained. Louis pub across the fairway is always good fun as well

Accommodation is very spacious and clean. A very pleasant experience. Excellent value for money. Restaurant has good food at good prices. The swimming pool was very refreshing considering the very hot climate of the area. Nice challenging golf course.

I really think the resort could be much better if they could just focus on a few things. The staff is inadequate to cater for the number of guests- long waiting for meals. Kitchen needs to be stocked at all times -- especially in the peak season, informing guests that the kitchen is out of stock of a number of...

We enjoyed the stay and my son enjoyed the golf coarse, but it was very dry and hot, which understandably was not your fault The rooms need some maintenance, as it was very hot, the air conditioning was very welcome The restaurant could do with cleaning up and better decor

The resort itself is very pleasant and clean. The location is unfortunately not ideal - a long drive down a dirt road (from Grahamstown) to get there. The drive from the opposite direction was enjoyable.

An excellent getaway for couples and families. Fine food, comfortable accommodation and good, friendly service. Bar facilities are good, a really fine , challenging golf course for those that enjoy the game- golf carts available. Beautiful ,natural scenery throughout the course. A lovely swimming pool to cool down in after a game of golf.
