We had to cancel our massage session because they were waiting for some lady, so that was not very impressive :-/ And we weren't informed that the kitchen closes @ 21h00, we couldn't order anything when we called @ 20h45.

What an awesome experience! Loved the tranquillity of the environment. We loved Otters Hide - and the secluded, romantic cottage with the sound of the gurgling river was all we needed to unwind and relax. All the staff were amazing, friendly and did everything to make our stay a memorable one. We will be back!

Very expensive for what you get, the package advertised was amazing but the product and outcome not great...the food was definitely not picnic food...they tried to do a Sunday Roast as a picnic... A cold whole chicken with cold potato bake and roasted veg could definitely be replaced with finger food that can be served cold. I personally think for... More

Lovely place in an easy to get to location, would have liked a bit more time there but it's not cheap for one of the more special rooms. Food was really nice. On arrival the reception area is a bit hard to find. The room was cosy and well appointed. And the estate really feels like countryside.

The service was excellent, the staff were friendly yet professional. The room we stayed in was gorgeous, romantic and very private. The food was excellent and would highly recommend dining there. It was the perfect place to get away for the weekend without having to travel too far and being able to unwind. I would highly recommend staying at Lethabo... More
