This establishment is rated 4 star with the SA Tourism Grading Council. My husband and I stayed the one night whilst attending a wedding in the area in November 2012. Although set in a lovely location I found this establishment to be living on past glories. The public areas were fine but the bedroom we were allocated was dated and shabby, with grubby linen. I was extremely disappointed and will not be so confident in the Grading Councils ratings in future I would rate this establishment a 2 star.
