Any comments on the bowls clinic with the springbok coach... Is it worth it and also did you play any actual games as well against teams etc or was it just coaching?
Hi 1. is the menu a set menu or is it a buffet style menu for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner 2. In the Rondavels, do we have a bath and separate shower thank you
The 6 course menu at dinner is table d'hote so is served to you. Some rondavels have showers and others have baths with showers in them.

What is the evening dress code?
They’re actually quite relaxed about the dress code. Long trousers for men, but I saw many wearing jeans.

"Rooms facing the mountains are recommended."
"The bed was hard, the decor uninspired, literally the only negative. *Stay for Sunday lunch, a treat to refuel"
"We always stay in a garden rondavel, but the mounnain view chalets are stunning"
"The single rondavels will be quieter but the Mountain View rooms have a fantasic view"
"Value for money but not posh."
