                                      I have never been a fan of thatched roof buildings, and this resort is no exception. What makes it worse is the dark brown tiles in the rooms and bathrooms. One never knows what is hidden on the floors. As it was there were black hairs lying in the bath which is white and was easily spotted. Clearly not seen by the cleaners. Even though there was tean and coffee in the rooms, we were not able to enjoy it as nobody really drinks cremora or powdered milk in their coffee.

                                      The room was comfy and breakfast was good. We did not get a chance to try out the restaurant, but it is all and all a peaceful retreat.

                                      Rooms were old but bedding was clean.Had to ask for kettle, no tv in room, very basic.Breakfast is only served from 8am which is quite unusual and inconvenient.

                                      The dam was originally named Pienaars Rivier Dam and meant for the water supply to the immediate land owners. It still supplies water but visitors are able to row and fish on the dam. Bass, carp, kurper and barbel can be caught.
