Beautiful location with friendly staff. Though the accommodation was clean it was disappointing and very basic. Good breakfast with freshly made koeksisters which were delicious.
Food at the restaurant though was not to the standard that we have been used to in South Africa.
This place could be a real gem if it was substantially upgraded.
