Perfect for a stop over but not for a longer holiday. This hotel met the need for a night on our journey. Comfortable and secure with a good breakfast it ticked all the boxes. Don't eat supper at the restaurant though as not so great. The butler was excellent.

A beautifull garden with a nice pool, but unfortunately it was raining. But the big spacious room, the friendly staff and the cosy restaurant still made it a good stay. The next morning we got a surprise: our dirty car was showroom clean.

What a surprise we found at Cranberry Cottage! Beautiful apartment (4 adults) and guest room for our mates. Every modern convenience available and newly renovated. The gardens are amazing! Lovely seating areas from a coffee shop to little nooks and crannies that are pretty and comfortable. Then we get to the service : 10/10! Everyone seems to have one goal...

We were passing through on our way to Kruger. Staff were unbelievably friendly and nothing was too much. Had a great dinner with very reasonably priced good wine. Brekkie was just as memorable. Definitely worth a visit!!
