Sadly we only had about 16 hours in this wonderful hotel.
The reception was wonderful and check in faultless, the golf carts speedily took us to our room.
The room was beautifullly furnished with elegant trappings, the balcony had 2 chairs,table and a recliner chair overlooking forest. The bathroom had a deep bath, walk in shower, separate lavatory with plenty of towels and toileteries. We had a dressing area (with 2 robes and complimentary slippers) between the bedroom and bathroom.
We asked for a bucket of ice for a pre dinner drink on the balcony this arrived speedily and without question.
Requesting to be collected for dinner was easy and rapid. Unfortunately we were part of a group and so were supposed to have a buffet but as Durban is the spice capital of S Africa we looked at the a la carte and enquired about paying the additional costs to have a Thali, there was no problem with this and we had the additional charge added to our bill, it was well worth it!
The choice of wine by the glass was excellent and all very reasonably priced.
Breakfast was a feast for the senses unfortunately we had very little time to enjoy this as we had to get a flight to Port Elizabeth then a long drive to the next hotel.
We would certainly return to this hotel for an extended stay and suggest that if you have the option to stay here for more than 1 night you do so, you won`t regret it!
