Our hosts, Peter and Liz, evidently like their job and are good at it. Our room on the ground floor was excellent with an extensive lawn populated by tortoises and birds leading down to the Sunday's river. The best features are the breakfast and the public room with a well-stocked and interesting library, though it's hard to avoid the rather kitschy "out of Africa" decor popular in some South African hotels. There's a fine swimming pool with braai (barbeque) facilities.
The southern entrance to the extensive Addo park is a couple of kilometers away and not to be missed. You can sure of a close encounter with elephants and the associated flightless dung beetle, not to mention numerous warthogs.
Best of all is the magnificent Sunday's River estuary with its magnificent dunes and endless beaches.
