There is a pool with beds etc. We stayed in Byocks this was... More

We had a lovely stay here. We were part of a small (14 people) group traveling together, and it appeared many of the other guests might have been part of such groups. The whole place had an old world elegance about it. Almost as if it was an old plantation house—though I have no idea if that is what it... More

Beautiful boutique guest house in the middle of country side. Was totally surprised by the bedrooms. Quality of finishing touches was excellent. Food was also very good. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We arrived at La Plume after a long drive and after a warm welcome we were given a drink on the lawn. The staff here are very friendly and helpful and the accommodation is great (Victorian style, but VERY comfortable). Our evening meal was very good and the Ostrich steak was fantastic. Breakfast is a buffet, but with a good... More

We have spent one night in this lodge during our honeymoon; the accomodation was in one suite and I must say that we are not satisfied just because the room was recently re-painted and there was a huge smell of paint. I think this room could not be given to customers in such conditions. For the rest it was a... More
