We were there for a friend's/colleague's wedding and it was beautiful. The service was on point and super efficient. The venue has beautiful natural landscapes, it is indeed an ideal location for a wedding, with their lovely chapel as well.

Such a great venue. Warm welcoming employees full of ubuntu. Always friendly and strive for good hospitality. I don't think I would consider another place to stay in when I'm at Umtata. Thanks and keep up the good work. I would recommend a different shower head, that the only thing which I didn't enjoy and easily fixable.

Big screed tv with dstv. No swimming pool, There is a tennis academy on the premises. A fully equipped gym and large sauna. Good value....
