Hadn't planned on stopping here for two nights during our recent stay in SA but sadly our original hotel was overbooked and the nice people at Virgin arranged this as an alternative........we are so pleased that they did!
First impressions were strong - very friendly personal welcome from the ever attentive Lisa Knight and the standards were maintained throughout our stay.
The accommodation was very comfortable (prob the best night's sleep of the holiday) and well appointed.
The food in the restaurant was excellent - we had already received two recommendations for the sea food platter from people we met on safari - do not miss this!
Enjoyed the (reasonably priced) cocktail bar where we were entertained by one of the resident cats who shared our taste for biltong.
We booked a trip (excellent dolphin safari) from the concierge service who were eager to help.
Great location, stunning views and an all round quality experience.
Would we book here again? Certainly - our experience of Lisa and her team has won us over and we wouldn't consider any where else in PB. The next stay will be longer - there is so much to do with great walking available at Storms RM, Robberg and Natures Valley - all stunning.
