“five star hospitality but the house bats was too much to cope with”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I've never come across better hospitality in South Africa than what we received at Red Rock. I would encourage anyone to stay but possibly not in this cottage. Pedro is amazing and her art is fantastic. I wish she had them in post card format to sell. She is a lovely lady and the way she looks after the workers and have built a community should be rewarded but unfortunately the actual cottage was a major let down. I would probably stay again because the hospitality was so amazing but in a different cottage. I really wanted to love the cottage but I couldn’t. It had a narrow outside seating area, no trees for shade and in house bats! This was the place I looked forward to most on my holiday but the bats flying around in the cottage at night really freaked me out. The first night I thought they were birds... yes I know what an idiot. The 2nd night all the doors and windows were closed and suddenly these things start flying around.... we assume they came through the chimney. Now I don’t mind nature but that’s a step too far. The cottage has no landline and mobile connection sketchy, no wifi either although I didn’t need it except when I was trying to find a place to stay urgently to get away from the bats... LOL. It’s on a hill overlooking a through road and cars are really noisy speeding along. The best part of our two day stay was the view of the red rocks and Pedro. I’m really sorry to give an average rating but we stayed in “safari tents” and never encountered bats so it’s just not good enough, nature is nature but there's a limit. There should be no bats especially as cottage is modern enough to have sattelite TV. The food and hospitality deserve 5stars.
