                                      Lovely setting, comfortable accommodation, excellent service and food. We only stayed overnight on our way up the coast, but we'd like to return and try the hikes and other activities.

                                      This was a beautiful and luxurious stay. It definitely exceeded my expectations. It had a feeling good much like the Drakensberg resorts. We had a stunning room, comfortable bed, underfloor heating... Dinner and breakfast were fantastic. We went on two short walks along the well mapped out paths - stunning scenery. Without question I will stay again - hopefully a bit longer next time.
