I spent 10 days at the African Rock on a business trip based at the airport, and it was just the best place to come back to after a hard day. Relaxing, quiet - the gardens are full of birds. The service is second to none, the food is superb, the rooms spotless and modern.
The attention to detail and the way you are treated so personally marks the Rock as above the others though. Details like the fire outside in the hearth every evening, offering to get in alternate dishes for the evening meal - any number of things which show they are thinking of you, and how to make you comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble.
It was a lovely stay and I can't recommend the Rock highly enough.
