Very basic accommodation and terrible food for the price we paid. Hotel staff ate in the dining room with guests and food stuff not available to paying guests was available to them! A very uninterested lady started the "Checkin", but then handed us over to Phumla who was the only STAR in the place! Horses also need their feet trimmed and properly fitting tack. Lovely area otherwise.

This was a nice place, in a beautiful and tranquil environment, with very friendly and helpful staff. The meals were spectacular.
