Arrived here after a long drive from Cape Town and a visit to Cango Caves en route!
The grounds are lovely as you drive in, and we were pleasantly surprised with the family room, in that is was actually a 2 bedroom cottage/apartment.
Everything was very clean, but parts were looking a little tired and in need of some TLC.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening which was an experience, not unpleasant, but also nothing to wow about.
Breakfast was included which was a bit of a bonus, but as we arrived after the "crowds" there was little left on offer.
The owner came and sat with us for a chat at breakfast which is a really nice touch, and quite useful information for our journey ahead.
I would definitely stay here again, so thank you for what was a brief but enjoyable visit for us.
