Nothing to dislike about our visit / experience
Beautiful outlook from rooms onto the mountains. Well appointed rooms with full range of amenities and lots of space / privacy Quality finish and only 2 minutes from town and excellent restaurants Will definitely use this property again for our next visit
The beautiful setting, friendly staff and peacefulness overall was great
Wonderful scenery - peaceful environment - very well equipped room - excellent breakfast - helpful staff.
Our stay was too short...
Loved the bath being open-plan and a big room with nice layout, beautiful views over the mountain. DVD's in the room
better TV package
Excellent staff. Very comfortable room. Lovely country setting. Excellent breakfast.
Beautiful rooms and wonderful mountain view. Definitely one of the best accommodations we had during our South Africa trip.
Spacious, stylish accommodation in peaceful and quiet setting. Careful attention to detail and thoughtful inclusion of items to ensure guests are comfortable.excellentfor
Couldn't get WiFi to work well - intermittent.
Quiet location - nice views of surrounding hills Very spacious, well equipped and stylish room. Large veranda area to enjoy the views. Good breakfast and pleasant breakfast area. Friendly & helpful staff.
Sterile environment - lack of genuine feeling Staff were clinical & insincere Said "enjoy" at every given moment Poor breakfast arrangement
Location & views lovely grounds
We did know there was a pool until we departed
Willing and Helpful personnel
Trees have been planted blocking the view from your veranda - presume this was for a purpose but destroys one of their unique selling points.
Quiet location but near to the town. Good breakfast. Good value for money.
The single bed was a bit narrow and I prefer down pillows. The pillow I had was too high.
I loved the room and the outlook. So relaxing after a long drive. Everything was perfect.
The room was clean, large and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and generous. The site is very beautiful. Lov
Quality of breakfast could not keep up with the beauty of the place.
Marvellous nature in a quiet place. Privacy in an accomodation close to flora and fauna.
There was no microwave in the rooms.It was inconvenient to walk at night to the main office to warm up food.No games room or tennis court.New travelers in the area were left to find their own entertainment . .No hiking or horse riding groups taking people around.
I liked the accommodation right at the base of the mountain.
By far the most awesome place we stayed in our whole trip. Friendly helpful staff, extremely comfortable suite, nice and quiet, spectacular views.
Very quiet modern lodge on edge of town, with lovely views from room terrace to mountains
Large modern room with many amenities. Beautiful view of the mountains.
The lack of Wi-Fi in the rooms. The choice of the TV channels.
The veranda with the room
Exposed bath tub !
Peaceful and wonderful location
bedroom/kitchen/bathroom layout - open plan - not ideal. Design a bit "basic"
convenience and solitude
thoughtful touches in rooms (DVDs, marshmallows & popcorn!) Rooms clean & well appointed Beautiful surroundings Helpful staff
The TV had a lot of channels, most that we couldn't view.
Liked the outside seating on the veranda, and especially the pool. The bath was fab.
