We had mainly stayed in some of the most fantastic guesthouses during our month's trip around South Africa, so we were not sure as to how the hotel would measure up. I booked a Standard Deluxe room but was a little concerned by earlier reviews saying they were dated. I had liaised with Celeske before our arrival about upgrading to a Luxury room, but they had none available. Nevertheless, The room we had was lovely (standard room 2) and had a very comfortable bed. It was large with a separate seating area and large French doors with probably the largest terrace of any of the rooms, luxury or otherwise. There were sun loungers as well as a table and chairs provided, which was great, as we had a wonderful view over the gardens to the dramatic mountains beyond.The bathroom was a good size though no separate shower. I love very modern decor and knew from the title, that this would be more of a country style which it was, but very tasteful and charming, if a little in need of a little updating, being slightly critical. However this did not impinge upon our enjoyment at all and I would definitely recommend.
The gardens are pretty and have two very nice pools.
The service was superb at breakfast and a 5 star breakfast in every respect. We had dinner in the restaurant and that was superb too, with excellent and very personable service. Victoria was a little star as were her colleagues, whose names we didnt know. The Manager and his Assistant were very visible and very attentive. Certainly exceeded my expectations and was a 5 star experience.
