The location looks idyllic in the brochure, and in fact it is beautiful - two lovely pools, good sized room with its own patio area, beautiful scenery. However, for an expensive hotel the service let it down. We asked for ideas on where to go with our young daughter and were told to visit either Franschoek or Stellenbosch - I think we could have worked that one out ourselves. In the end it was easier to go to the tourist office and find our on our own. We were charged R400 each for a very average chinese banquet -drinks extra - a small fortune in South Africa.
All in all there are better places to visit and better value.
