        Perfect for what we needed...a couple of nights away from it all...stunning setting and room and service were ideal! Not to mention the lavender fields and ostrich retreat next door! Would recommend for couples with a need for relaxation.

        It might be because of a wedding taking place when we stayed there but neither the building or the facilities were super clean nor the staff super friendly. WiFi was quit slow , also it is a bit outside Franschoeck
