I spent a week at the resort for a meeting. I had the opportunity to have my own house that was one of many offered at the resort. My house was located on the 13th green of a lovely, well kept golf course. I would walk to my meeting place at the resort through the course and wander by wild... More

The hotel staff were excellent in their service. We had our families spend 2 nights and with a group of over 40 people accommodated to be part of our wedding , they are still singing praises of the place. The food was well laid out and the entire program was executed beyond our expectation. You should try the bush dinner... More

Event decor was awesome, food not so good. The Rooms are amazingly Nice. Nice place to be. I will definitely come back. Expected an iron box in the room but I couldn't find one. Nice view from the rooms. The place is very cold, better have your cold wear packed.

I went there around July with two of my friends and we were terribly disappointed. The receptionist in charge wasn't very enthusiastic while showing us around and did not seem to keen to address our concerns. Most of the rooms are not well maintained and need a bit of refurbishing, walls and floors are not in very good shape. The... More

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
