                      Baie dankie aan die baie bekwame personeel Hermien en Frans. Van ons aankoms tot vertrek is ons deur hul op d hande gedra. Die spesiale blomme en kerse bad, die groen vye en fillet aandete was iets om te onthou. Hierdie spesiale moeite met ons huweliksherdenking sal ons altyd koester ....Baie dankie julle...Ons sien jul beslis gou weer.

                      Staff is friendly. Parking is just a problem, there's not enough. Breakfast is served too early, so if you want to relax and sleep in, you will miss it. Staff were also a bit loud since early in the morning-the rooms aren't soundproof, so you get woken up by any noise. Nice if you just want a place to sleep, not for relaxing.

                      Our stay was pleasant the staff are very helpful. The rooms are beautiful and big- the breakfast was acceptable. The chef went out of his way to accommodate my requests.

                      Very stylish rooms and whole place very lovely in terms of design and interior. Very 'boutique' with jacuzzi baths etc. Room probably a bit too 'white' for us after spending 5 nights in the red dust camps of the kgaladi national park -so we felt a bit bad dirtying the light coloured carpets but I guess they get used to it! Not sure about the full length clear glass window from the bedroom into to the bathroom in our room, as you can see each other on the toilet! Room was apparently meant to be a honeymoon suite and if I were on honeymoon I'm not sure it would add to the romance....Staff very...
