Built 11 years ago by somebody who had Randolph Hearst ambitions! Italianate and grand with lovely furnishings and mirrors throughout. Not quite my taste but a great sense of luxury for one night. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite on arrival - a very nice touch - you could fit much of our house in it. His and hers bathrooms and a spacious walk in dressing room. The view from the lovely bedroom of the sun setting over Pretoria was lovely as was that of the garden.
The large bed was comfortable - all in all a pity we only had one night and needed to leave early in the morning!
