We were received very warmly by the staff at Reception. They recognised us through previous visits and were charming. We found our room was just what we expected and everything worked well. The room was clean and tidy as we expected.
The tiny bar was ideal for a drink or two after the days travel and the service was great - again smiling and very attentive.
Breakfast in the dining room was good - plenty of fresh South African fruit and adequate cereals to be selected. Muffins and croissants were always available and the coffee was excellent. The choice of cooked breakfast foods was also good and the quality excellent. Again cheerful, smiling waitrons attended to our every need. Lunches and dinners also met our high standard.
The grounds were very well kept and the planting of trees, additional to the very many already established, deserves special mention. The walks were clearly marked and easy to follow but at the age of 85, not all were easy going.
