There is simply not enough time or space to sing the praises of everything this hotel has to offer.
We were picked up at the airport on time with ice cold refreshments. The driver was such a friendly soul. Explaining the history, pointing out buildings as we came through the dust and down into Cape.
The reception and porter staff were impecable. Fizz on arrival, a grand tour of the hotel, finishing at our room where our bags awaited.
Oh and what an amazing room... "so nice".......we were on the 2nd floor (room 23 something)of the main block with a small balcony.... if you can upgrade to the cottages ... then certainly do, we managed to sneak a look.
Nb: For the keep swimmers there is also a second and more secluded pool.
Breakfast and high noon tea were amazing with a very colonial feel. Dinner was not especially great but this is a very small point to give a balanced review.
By the time my stay here was over a part of me died.
A hotel could not have done more to make my stay this comfortable.... and thus ends my tale!!!!
