The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The owners just the opposite. On what basis do you earn 4 stars at SA grading council without TV or barfridge in rooms? There is a huge mice/rat problem. They were running over corrigated iron roof from 03h00 and was very difficult to sleep. Very peacefull setting. Nice pool. Breakfast far below par. Scrambled eggs and toast?
