“Ramantic, Warm and Very Friendly!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We (three couples) booked for a friend's birthday dinner and decided to stay the night. What a great "aftertaste" it left :) The staff was super friendly and helpful, the venue was delightful and romantic, the food was excellent and the cottages inviting and warm (with fireplace). I especially appreciated the underfloor heating in the bathroom and the luxurious and comfortable bed, bedding and pillows. The restaurant has a great ambiance and the bar area is inviting. All round beautiful views!

Beautiful room with wonderful views. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was outstanding. We canoed along the river in the morning which was magical.
This stay was one of the highlights of our holiday..

We love our yearly stay at Emily moon. Great Location, great food and staff. Even though its Winter time, we had a stunningly comfortable stay as usual. Enjoyed a great canoe paddle this time, the Fish Eagles were a special touch!

What an amazing place! My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for a few days in July and it was absolutely fantastic. Great weather, great service, great rooms, great food, great wine - what more could you ask for?! The fireplace in our room was our highlight. And it was even better when the turn down service included starting a fire for you so that you returned to a warm room with a crackling fire.

We will definitely return to this gem.

What a surprise to find such a delightful place just outside of Plett and seemingly deep in the country!
We loved our room; particularly because of the attention to detail.
Staff were also great. Décor amazing
