One of the greatest golf courses in the Region. The rustic scenery makes for a beautiful get away. Reasonably priced cottages are ideal for family holiday with the option of self catering or eating at the restaurant One of the best conference facility too. You will walk with the zebra and monkeys as you play golf

After a bad start, damp room in a cottage with no hot water or electric in plugs was moved to another single room with a view over the valley. Much nicer and with a comfortable bed and balcony. Staff fantastic, helpful and cheery and made you feel welcome. Meals buffet style but sufficient and quality ok. Wifi free throughout but... More

My stay was short but pleasant. The cottages are laid out beautifully in natural wooded surroundings, with paved stone pathways leading to them. Hot water is available all the time, but our room housed an open shower area with curtains, which is a bit of a shock if you have a roommate and you're used to privacy in the bath.The... More

I booked at the resort by play golf and had played there previously without staying. The golf courses superb and very well maintained. The rooms are average and no phones means problem in communication. The food was truly mediocre and showed no imagination or effort at all. For the price, the place is not worth it to stay.

There's no doubt that this resort has beautiful surroundings. The hotel itself is quite old and this is visible in the lobby and in the rooms as well. We were there for a wedding and there was also a big corporate retreat taking place that weekend. This meant that the service was so slow. The front desk was very disorganized.... More

Great experience at the hotel while on business visits. Cottages are so spacious and built on an expansive land that gives residents and opportunity to exercise while walking from the conference or dining rooms to the sleeping area. Wonderfully and beautifully constructed cottages. Nice for holiday get away.

We stayed here for a week's conference. The conferencing was excellent - well appointed rooms and organised staff. The food was outstanding, I really enjoyed every meal. The hotel rooms were good: not excellent, but good. Only thing I didn't enjoy was the intermittent WiFi. Thanks for hosting us!
