Disappointing. Standards have dropped but price hasn't. Accommodation was spacious but everything needs a good scrub and a makeover. The shower looking into an atrium type garden was awful. Garden a mess. Our bed was double not Queen and was uncomfortable. It was an ugly metal four poster that creaked loudly every time we moved. Food is still excellent but the dinner is R345 per head extra. At R825 per person for the accommodation is was a rip off and on future we'll overnight elsewhere. Hosts were charming and service good but they need to upgrade their facilities if they want to charge those prices.
