                          My partner and I had a wonderful weekend at the guest house. Beautiful garden, peaceful environment.

                          The place was super. With a warm welcome from Ronnie and his wife. Excellent hospitality and I really loved the dog even though I was scared of her on Friday. It was hot outside, but when you’re in your room it is cool and enjoyable. We will certainly recommend the place to our friends and when visiting Hartbees we will use these facilities again.

                          I loved the surroundings, rooms and pool. Everything is provided for at the guesthouse. I was disappointed with the info about certain activities. For eg, a map was given but perhaps land marks could have been mentioned. A trip was said to be 45 min and it was over an hr and 15min. I could have and nearly did miss my canopy tour. We wanted to do the boat trip. The owner could not get hold of the boat co-ordinator so he told us it leaves from the zoo. He failed to mention that you have to pay for and go through the zoo. Extra charge and personally, I cannot stand zoos. Also, for the cableway...
