We made our booking via Expedia in the UK on the basis of their web description.
The heading of this review tells it all. As another review says, the area as you drive in is somewhat austere but as you walk up the steps into the reception area, a new world opens up! The reception area is also a sitting room with comfortable chairs and books to browse, but your eyes are taken on to the dining area which overlooks the pool, around which some of the bedrooms are set. The dining area has a fully glazed wall made of retracting sections. We sat for breakfast each morning with the gentle air moving round our legs and the sun cutting sharp shadows on the pool surround and the shrubs alongside it.
There was a mix-up with our booking which was quickly resolved. We were in a Grand Terrace Suite which was spacious and well presented with a full kitchen leading off the main room and a bathroom with shower. We were well pleased.
The room rates do not include breakfast. By arrangement one can have breakfast which we did and the bowl of fruit you could die for even by South African standards.
