Beautiful colonial style home that has inviting relaxing spots in abundance. The gardens, pools, and streams add to the tranquility. Attention to detail like a selection of sunblock next to the pool. Breakfast was delicious. All the staff were friendly , helpful and prepared to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Grace the Lab and Ginger the cat was the cherry on top

We booked 2 cottages at The Stables and enjoyed breakfasts at The Elephant House. The property is an absolute gem, beautifully maintained pools and garden and a wonderful colonial ambiance. Charlene are her team provided us with friendly and efficient service. We hope to return again in the not too distant future!

From the warm welcome with tea and cake to the spacious comfortable rooms with good linen, we felt so at home here. The staff are really amazing going beyond what is expected with big friendly smiles. The verandas beg you to relax, chat or read one of the plentiful magazines while sipping a drink.

Excellent large bedroom & walk in shower bathroom with very comfortable lounge area's in beautiful setting; really lovely place to come back to after being on safari. The evening meals were of high standard & served in the atmospheric map room. Breakfast was served outside overlooking one of the swimming pools and garden area. The Elephant House added so much to the Safari experience, also highly recommend doing Addo National park with their driver to gain more sightings and knowledge. We did the 'Tooth & Claw' at the nearby Schotia game reserve the following day which enhanced our experience of Addo being later in the day seeing the animals in the evening and of course the South African Braai which is included in the price and is the perfect ending!

Such a beautiful place to relax and enjoy open verandahs, books, National Geographic magazines with old photos of safaris on the walls. Wonderful food and such kind, helpful staff, who made us feel very welcome. Great base for getting to the Addo National Elephant Park - we loved our stay, thank you.
