      I had a wonderful stay at Tambotie, staff very helpful. Rooms were clean and neat. Breakfast was good. A special thanks to Beverly, she was helpful and understanding when I was getting lost, she even waited at the gate for us, I appreciate that a lot.

      No it wasn't very good.room was dirty and no attention to detail. Patio furniture was moved by their friends and only returned much later, no where to sit.
