We stayed in this hotel in early January for two nights and we loved it! The setting is beautiful and it was very relaxing. The room was very nice and the breakfasts and dinner were excellent. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly and we would love to stay there again!

It took my breath away. This is a 5 star place. We paid a good price for beautiful bedroom and great breakfast Why do they charge extra for expresso at breakfast? Incredible. To be nickel an dimed for an expresso. It took me by surprise badly. I don't care about the R75 charge but is it worth the negative publicity...
