Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

With utmost care and efficiency we were ushered to a beautiful and cool room amidst the blazing heat in Ladysmith. The cleanliness and comfort of the room complimented the very scrumptious breakfast with our needs very adequately met. The gardens are well laid out.. a pity the heat kept us away from a stroll through it! Most definitely recommended and good value for money as well! Our appreciation to all for making the stop over a very pleasant one.

Friendly staff and very helpful. Well documented Covid 19 protocols observed. Very safe and assurance by the management about safety.
I'm not happy for these survey to ask for 200 characters and not allow me to submit if I less than 200 characters. Survey must be from the willingness of the person not by force. That's my opinion.

At arrival we appreciated that the property was clean and beautiful and seen on the Internet.
The smell of cow dung was the first that noticed. Proceeded to room to find someone’s bag in the wardrobe? Which was very strange. The smell of the that roof in room 10 is very strong , mix that with the cow dung smell and sinuses hit the roof. The DSTV was not paid for so watching TV was off the books and my husband really wanted to catch up on his soccer. To make matters worse there was a couple shouting and screaming at each other for over 20 mins and no one from the staff reprimanded them. I had to leave my room to ask them to keep it down. Overall we were disappointed with the service.

A pleasant rest over. I was received in a friendly way. The food was good and I enjoyed to have the sport channels on television so I could relax well. My room was clean and neat. I would like to have a plug close to the bed to make it easier to charge my cell phone.

Service was poor, bordering on dismal. There was no one to check me in and out. I had to ask the security guard to assist with checking in. I left without checking out. I had to go knocking on other people's doors looking for someone to serve me dinner after having waited for more than 10 minutes in the dining room.

Room 1 was comfortable, the shower was amazing and the room was quite comfortable. But there was a horrible smell, at first I thought it was a urine smell, but because of the cows their cow dung smell, comes into the room. Hence throughout the night, I could get the smell. Unfortunately, that wasn't so pleasant to sleep and wake up with.

Good, friendly service from all staff from reception to kitchen, clean comfortable room, easy to have dinner and not drive to town. Delicious food selection. The honesty bar is also convenient, and coffee station. The venue feels safe with security at the gate and the gardens are beautifully to have a early morning
