Rose is a jewel, from the word go. Rooms impeccable. Grounds and surrounds breath-taking. Limited restaurant service on a Sunday is a problem for short period visitors. Waiter not knowledgeable and spoils the perfect picture, and so did the melted oily cheese on the cold buffet. For the rest definitely a very good experience. Andre Vorster

Dear Andre, Thank you for writing a review. I'm sorry about the waiter and the cheese. Training is a ongoing process at our lodge and I will make sure that our ladies will improve more. The cheese is much more difficult, we cut fresh cheese every morning, but on hot days the cheese sweats easily. Putting ice underneath even makes...
