We loved our stay at the hotel. The rooms were of a high standard and the service, excellent. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The portions are quite large. If you prefer a smaller meal or dessert, opt to share with someone or request a half portion.

The hotel is quite nice, the luxury room has a kind of living room, a bedroom and a well sized bathroom. It's equipped with a flatscreen tv and a fridge. The room was clean like the entire hotel. Breakfast tasted nice and nothing was missing for us. The hotel is build in "village-style", no big block just small houses which...

This place is a much better place than we have previously stayed in other places. The facilities are good and so is the food. However, just that it would be good that if the room could have at least a fan for wind circulation. The TV although is a flat screen, take note that it does not support HDMI. The...

In overhaul, we had an excellent experience like all the other years we've been there. Would you please allow us to braai on the premises as this was the only discomfort we experienced.

Excellent service: wonderful, appetising breakfast!, equal to the feast for a king. Friendly, professional, helpful staff. The room needs some "refreshing" though still comfortable and clean. What we like best of the hotel was the safe, quiet and peaceful environment, and of course their Breakfast.

Thank you for your lovely review and for your honest feedback. We are aware that the standard room option requires some refurbishment. The standard room units were initially purpose-built to accommodate conference delegates but we have plans to upgrade this in the future. Our executive wing is our most luxurious and newest accommodation option and might be more to your...

We had a wonderful stay will go back any time. Rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Management and staff were excellent in all departments. The only "downside" is the location it is not sea facing.

We appreciate your review. Thanks so much. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about sea views as we are just a little too far from the sea to provide beach front views. However, we are a quick drive from the beach.

At your home-away-from-home escape, we provide comfortable accommodation and top facilities for private guests, weddings, special occasions and business functions.
