We have been to Giraffe Manor three times, and I do agree it is a very magical place!!! Where else can you share your breakfast with giraffes???
Only thing I would like to say is that since Giles and Jessica are running the place it is now more about being a boutique hotel then hotel you share with giraffes - the previous managers did know all about the history of the place and could tell you the most wonderful stories it was more like a family affair incl the giraffes and not like a hotel where they are lucky enough to have giraffes visiting for breakfast and for a limited time in the afternoon.
Also for the price they charge I would accept more flexibility !!! Most flights from the UK don't get it till late at night and they want you to leave your room by noon not much time to enjoy your stay unless you stay two nights, if you want to come at the end of your holiday you also faced with a dilemma as the flights back are not till night time and again you have to check out by noon - what to do for the rest of your day?! You can't stay in the hotel grounds unless you pay another 50% room rate???
But the food the place,staff and of course the giraffes make this still a very special place. We will never return till they have appointed new managers who understand client bla bla !!!!!
