Hmmmmm! If I was not here as part of a tour I would have left by now. Taken to our room which was very cold and dated. Airconditioning on but barely functioning. We complained and were moved to another room with a slightly better airconditioner. The rooms were so cold that the beds felt really damp. After complaining again an... More

The staff really make this hotel, they are so friendly & accommodating. The room was lovely and big with a great bathroom including a corner tub. It was a nice setting & they served some good decent food, even if it was a buffet.

Huge room, with big clean comfortable bed, large bathroom with loads of lovely toiletries and separate toilet, which makes a nice change. Room has large Stoop overlooking the beautiful gardens where you could sit in the shade and have tea in the morning or drink in the evening. Gardens are well kept and the pool is nice for a dip...

Spent one night in this lovely hotel. Huge rooms full of character and personal touches. Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and breakfast. Set in beautiful grounds just down the road from an ostrich farm which was well worth a visit. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was full of character with large veranda and very good bathroom. The grounds are delightful and very well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. Also offered free laundry. Was only let down by a poor evening meal but the manager responded well to our criticism.

A very quaint hotel with an odd mix of old and new furnishing. A beautiful setting with lovely grounds. The swimming pool was out of action and in its raw state looked none to clean. The room was spacious with an excellent ensuite, large corner bath and walk in shower, plenty of hot water. The bed was uncomfortable, the pillows... More

This hotel has been the property of the same family for generations. Rooms are all individually furnished, in some cases with pieces of the family's own furniture. Room 12 was very comfortable with a sitting area, verandah, huge TV, safe, enormous bed and luxurious bathroom with walk in shower and separate spa bath. White fluffy towels and bathrobes provided too.... More

Stayed here in March after selecting this lodge based on reviews. Think we were very unlucky in that we checked in when there was a large group staying there. On arrival the staff took our cases to the rooms but left the rest of our bags in the car park and we ended up having to take them ourselves as... More

First of all I must say the owners of this property are one of the nicest couples I have encountered in all my travels around the globe. My wife was still feeling unwell following food poisoning from a previous location and the treatment we received was outstanding including a candlelit special meal on the balcony that the owners refused to...

This hotel was selected by "Trail Finders" and it is truly amazing location with several houses or chalets on a large area of land. The rooms were brilliant and well equipped. We went down to the large restaurant for breakfast and were stunned by the large display of fresh fruit, yoghurts etc, and cooked food was delicious. The hotel is... More
