We discovered De Doornkraal by accident when we decided that Riversdale was an ideally situated nightstop after leaving Cape Town via Cape Agulhas for Port Elizabeth. The welcome from Chris, Vivienne and the staff was amazing and Chris even took time to help us out with a mobile phone problem in addition to his being the head chef and manager. Accommodation was very comfortable but the jewel in the crown was the restaurant and superb food beautifully prepared by Chris and perfectly accompanied with a 'home made' blanc de noir which must rank as one of South Africa's finest. Our only regret was we were only in for one night; however,De Dooornkraal will definitely feature on our next visit and we will ensure we stay longer and enjoy the local ambience.
