I checked into this beautiful Garden Manor and was greeted by the owners Minette and Billy in the car park which was a lovely way to start my stay! I was shown to my room but first given a tour of the house and gardens while the sun was setting, which was breathtaking. Billy, the owner, spent ages telling me all about the history of the house, and explaining the photos which adorn the reception walls, which tell a very interesting story! The Hotel is set overlooking Tzaneen and has stunning views from every part of the Garden. My room was lovely, I had a beautiful fireplace, a little lounge area, a bathroom, all of which was extremely spacious and decorated to a very high standard. It's modern with an African theme which I was hoping for, as a visitor from the UK.
I was then seated in the garden with a bottle of wine, a view over Tzaneen, and a delicious platter as a prelude to my 4 course meal. The fact that this was free of charge was wonderful as it would have been well over R80 at any other establishment.
The cuisine is outstanding, my duck was cooked to perfection and as a trained chef I was very impressed. By far the best food I was served in South Africa.
The staff were all very friendly, and made me feel so welcome, I can't recommend this Garden Manor highly enough, when they start doing weddings I will be booking mine there!
Thank you for making our trip to South Africa such a wonderful one!
