The place is good but the electricity outage made the trip not value for money at all.
It through all plans off. It should be noted that staff tried to help a lot and that was appreciated.
Investing in a generator would help

Dearest Guest,

We thank you for your review, we do welcome all objectives as this will only aid us in creating
an even better experience for our valued guests.

We take note of your concern regarding investing in a generator and we are most definately looking into that situation.
We do apologise profoundly for the inconvenience caused by the electricity outage. Unfortunately a transformer blew and we had no other option but to wait on the municipality to repair it.

We really enjoyed having you all with us and we sincerely hope that you will consider visiting us here at Summerset Place Country House again.
It's true that we have become quite dependant on electricity so i most certainly do understand your frustration.

We hope to make your next stay an unforgettably delightful experience.

Regards,

Summerset Place is one of the greatest places I have visited.The rooms are supper clean and super spacious.The service from all staff members including owners superb.There is nothing pretentious about the country house, Home away from home, however with a "hotel" feel twist!!!I will be returning in due time:-)

Tranquil location in bush-veld setting. 5-star quality accommodation at 3-star rate, with excellent food by in-house chef. No. 1 choice whenever in Bela-Bela region. Will visit again soon for golf with host Morné.

We enjoyed our stay at this peaceful and beautiful country house. Great food, awesome service and very friendly owners. The rooms are super clean and huge. The pool was very clean- crystal blue. Very well taken care of place. We will definitely come back again.
