What a wonderful place to celebrate a special birthday with family and friends. Julie and Richard went out of their way to make my sister's birthday extra special. We had a wonderful evening in the boma and despite the cold, we all sat around a roaring fire and had a great evening. The cottages are lovely and we had fires going inside as well. The staff are very obliging and efficient. Prince Albert is a quaint little town with lots of interesting galleries and shops. I was impressed at how clean it was.
