My husband and I were the youngest people here by about 40 years! The hotel appears to be exactly as it must have been in the 70's or 80's, and it is quite basic. Rooms do not have airconditioning and instead have ceiling fans.
It seems to be a place that older South Africans go year after year, and the daily activities that were listed made us feel like we were in Butlins (eg, Bingo on the terrace...)
The setting is beautiful however the hotel is a long way from any restaurants or bars / cafes which, although close, are not really walkable due to the hotel being at the bottom of a steep hill... unless you are super fit you will need to drive everywhere.
