This is a very friendly hotel. All the staff are very helpful. We had a luxury garden room (no 41)- it had a little patio outside with table and chairs - Also overlooked the small swimming pool. The air conditioning worked well. A delightful room. The only thing missing was a fridge - we were told as we were leaving... More

We had the most delicious, candlelight dinner. The service was excellent with very attentive waiters. The food was superb. There was a pianist which created just the right atmosphere. This is a must visit establishment whether for lunch, dinner, accomodation or just a drink. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique hotel with it's art-deco style furnishings and very friendly staff. There were a few nice surprises: a lovely, reasonably priced massage at the garden spa, the 'jacuzzi' bathtub in our room and great live piano music during an enjoyable dinner in the Dining Room. Would love to go again!

Dear Robertson2905 Thank you for the review! Our wellness centre has been upgraded recently, and we boast 2 great ladies doing the various treatments on offer. Very popular with the ladies is the Gellish nail options. We have more exciting plans for the wellness centre, maybe it will be ready for your next visit!

We stayed one night when visiting family. Room maybe a bit in need of some renovation, but still very good and clean. We had a lovely light lunch served with a smile in the garden. Staff are very friendly and helpful.Enjoyed the stay and we would stay here again. Breakfast outside in the lovely country garden was good.

Dear Lionel_11 Thank you for the review. We love hosting the Flemish at the hotel, it's great to be able to talk to you in Afrikaans. I fully agree that breakfast should be in the garden this time of year, our trees attract a lot of birdlife, great for taking pictures. Safe travels, P-J Basson General Manager More
