My 8 year old daughter and I were spoilt rotten there celebrating her birthday. Just a mom and daughter treat that was memorable. From the Skabenga(resident feral cat) gifts for Stella, to the welcome note, to the gorgeous and delicious cake served on the dresser in the pink room overlooking the lighthouse and the warm indian ocean. What more could a little girl (or mom want)? She was given a band for her arm that entitled her to help herself to any of the sweets in huge glass jars in the restaurants and OB movie theatre. What a special time watching Mary poppins that night just the two of us eating as many jelly tots as we could! We spent an hour in the
The Clock Tower library writing letters to dad and each other sitting at the oversize wooden desk next to the gramophone. Special memories made at this exceptional hotel with their wonderful staff.
