          It's a rarity for us to return to somewhere where we have already been and the special effort we made to visit Serendipity whilst we were in South Africa was well worth it. The room, the service,and the food were all first class.

          Attentive owners run an extremely welcoming establishment. The rooms all open out onto a comfortable balcony overlooking the garden and lagoon, making for a tranquil experience and a good nights sleep. The walks in the area are very good and the owner will provide suggestions...More

          Great restaurant Rooms - called suites - are small with tiny bathrooms and would benefit with upgrading and modernising. Not very clean. The communal terrace is OK providing no-one is smoking outside.

          Very comfortable room with beautiful river view. We had dinner at Serendipity on our 2nd night which was a sublime experience in a lovely setting. Welcoming host, Elsabe made us feel so at home. Breakfast was also great.
