We booked into here on two separate occasions in October 2013. On both occasions we found the staff relaxed and professional, the chalets clean and well equipped and the pool refreshing and clean. Breakfast was a good choice of substantial meals which meant you really didn't need to eat again until dinner.... In the evening its clear the Head Chef and his staff enjoy their work - the menu was inventive with a great selection of Venison dish's and other meats together with fish and vegetarian options all typically local. Wine list is predominately South African with some classy and expensive choices. However we selected the standard 'house' options and found them perfectly acceptable and vastly better than a lot of other house wines offered by similar hotels. The management team are splendid and a credit to the human race - one of our group had succumbed to a hidden unidentified spider bite which could have been very serious, one of the two owners contacted a member of staff who was in town and procured over the counter a prescription of relevant and suitable antibiotics which saved the day - I cannot think of another establishment that would go the distance in these circumstances.. Late afternoon whilst enjoying a few sundowners one can enjoy visits from various wildlife like Zebra and Warthogs together with deer and Monkeys. All in all a great place to stay for a few days to relax.
