I have not anything bad to say about the accomodation. I just felt it was expensive in relation to the room's presentation. The best aspect was the bathroom ; a separate WC off the bathroom ; free standing shower and bath. The bed was two units pushed together to make up a King BUT there was no converter spread over the two mattresses so a definite " valley " formed during the night - uncomfortable. Our bedroom was classed as luxury. Then why was there not a specific hair shampoo. A combo body wash and shampoo was provided instead. Also stains on the mosquito net and slight tearing of the fabric did not look good.
Loved the little verandah off the room but our view was marred by the high electric fence which started directly from the manicured lawn . All it needs was a softening of local shrubs .
The proportions of the room was perfectly adequate but not luxurious and the price tag leaned towards luxurious.
The meal we had that evening was once again adequate but not the + R500 price tag for two including a bottle of wine and water. Our fillet was maybe fillet maybe not ; it certainly did not have the succulent tenderness associated with fillet. Smothered in a wine sauce , yes it was OK but just that. Another gripe here ; when checking in we stipulated , on their request , what diet we were on. There was no consideration taken of our comments in the meal presentation , so why the request in the first place.
