Two nights spent at this superb establishment. Although it is many hours from home in Europe, we will return. Owners made us very welcome - sat down together with tea/beer to run through details of the place. They even recommended & booked a restaurant in the evening as we did not know the area.
Comfortable rooms in two blocks. Modern design and all amenities including reasonably priced wine/beer in mini bar. Good security for guests and vehicles. Even electrical adapters were provided! In well equipped club house there is a wide range of tourist information, DVDs and an honesty bar. Free coffee and tea.
Superb breakfast included cold meat/fish, prepared fruit and local cheese fresh orange juice was a favourite. As was the excellent coffee. Cooked breakfast was just right, with fresh eggs and bacon.
Pool was on the small side, but the view of the hills behind made up for this
Rhodesian Ridgeback, Scamper(?) was so cool.
Even a follow up email a week after we left, wishing us a safe flight back to the UK.
