We spent one night here during a garden route tour.
The manager, Louis, was very friendly. The rooms are very nice chalets, which you access through the beautifully-landscaped gardens. Beds are a good size, as is the bathroom.
The place is geared up to tour groups rather than individuals, and we were the only people staying there, which felt quite awkward when we were having dinner in the evening, with one member of staff standing by until we left to go to bed.
The downside is it's out of town - as we were on a tour, so didn't have our own transport, that meant we were at the hotel from 4pm until 8am with nowhere else to go, so we did feel a little trapped. If you have your own transport it wouldn't be a problem.
