We spent three nights here after a very busy 10 day tour of Kruger. Why did we end up here - to experience Meercats with Devey (see Meercat Adventures). It was lovely and quiet and what a great part of SA, stunning scenery lovely little town with a great museum and good restaurants. The bungalow was very clean spacious and comfortable. We had breakfast one morning which wasn't the best but this would be a minor gripe. Special mention to Marlene who was absolutely brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and she is so bubbly and friendly she is a real credit to the establishment. Much praise to Boy the gardener who does an absolutely brilliant job with stunning results and the smell of lavender is gorgeous. If you are looking for somewhere to self cater, this is the place.
If you are out and about, be mindful that the Swartzberg pass is not for the faint hearted or those with no head for heights. I wouldn't want to do it again despite the magnificent views!
