Great welcome and coffe follow up. No complaints about the room or the food. Service caring and prompt. Well done. Getting better every year. Keep improving! Now two swimming pools and better garden layout.

We stopped here overnight as a halfway point between Knysna and Cape Town. We were greeted on our arrival by the friendly owner (there is a bell to ring if you can't find anyone). The rooms, or rather little houses are positioned a 'village green' setting. Like a smaller version of Storms River Village in Tsitsikamma. They are very homely,...
