What I liked:
Flowers in the room
Large size of room
Graaf-Reinet is a pretty town with many listed buildings.
What I didn’t like:
We booked the blue room and were given the green room with no explanation
The magazines in the bedroom were about shooting and hunting which I find offensive
The bed should have been queen or king size in a four star establishment
Mildew on bathroom ceiling and in shower grout
Ants in the bathroom
Communal tea tray only had enough coffee for one cup
We requested breakfast at 7 and were told it would be fine. Bettie the cook arrived at 7 but she did not have the ingredients to make breakfast so we had to wait about 20 minutes.
The coffee plunger was large enough for one cup (we ordered two coffees). When we asked for more coffee, she had to fetch it from across the road and reuse the same small plunger.
