Wow, once again we have graced the garden forest that is Willowbrook Country House. Where does Willowbrook get its staff from? We arrived on a Friday night, for a full weekend stay and we were met at the door by Conrad. Now, Conrad is not your average concierge by any means. He has the genuine likeability and supreme efficiency of ten top concierges rolled into one. A simple phone call to reception was met by Conrad's up tempo voice. He is so quick, that once I had replaced the receiver of the phone, after making a request for a cooler of ice, I would look for the tell-tale shadow of his feet under the front door. Willo-the-wisp has nothing on this guy. Once again we were stunned by the perfect room which became our 'stress reliever' for three days. A quick request to a staff member had them bring two comfortable recliners and place them at the rear French doors door of our suite, to be used to languish on, while looking out at the beautiful tree-lined gardens overlooking the Lourens River. What bliss. There is nothing more calming than drifting off, while lying on a recliner, to the sounds of birds chirping in the trees and the gentle gurgle of river water flowing by. From the large flat screen TV, the stocked bar fridge, to the crisp white linen, the towelling gowns and the classic décor, to the smaller touched like the fresh flowers in the room, Willowbrook ensured that our stay was, once again, a fantastic one. Do not forget the scrumptious farmhouse breakfast that we ate outside in the shady dining area and the smell of freshly brewed filter coffee that lured us in the right direction ... what a rest, what a holiday ... what a treat. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger ... Willowbrook we'll be back!
