This place is really amazing, okay the room size is crazy, you can park a car!! Their front garden is the real attraction and you can sit under a tree and read a book and be lost in the view! The food is amazing, I do think the "amazing chef" needs help though with the administration stuff, she is responsible for the carrying the entire establishment, which means she disappears into the kitchen while creating her amazing meals, at times when you really need guidance about basic stuff, but no one is complaining, as guests seem to be happy to just hang in there, I don't think anyone minds really, they have thought of everything. They leave you alone, I love that, but a complete boutique hotel experience, with all meals provided for, you just need to order and she will blow you away with her meals. There was a group that came for a workshop during our stay and we never felt them and I dont think they felt us either, the tranquil of the space allowed for us to co-exist. I think this place really is amazing!! You even forget that you are in the busy Johannesburg surbub.
