over priced, well below what one would expect for this price. grounds were very nice, and it was quiet, but nothing else was worth the hefty price tag. 220 per night. NO cooked breakfast. and i dont eat weet bix and corn flakes. no nice muesli even.
I felt like we were using someone else's room and bathroom . the cupboards were half full of someone's belongings. the bathroom was not connected directly, and the vanity was full of old used toiletries etc. in the morning there was no hot water, it was not even lukewarm. we used a guest lounge at night, also the office, but could not get the tennis channel, so missed the open finals. one of the owners walked past us to his bedroom with a towel wrapped around him after his shower. in the morning he walked around the grounds in his pyjamas. no coffee or tea in the rooms. only instant coffee from the kitchen. hosts were friendly, but they would have to be.
