We spent one night here and wished it would have been more. Upon our arrival on a chilly So. Africa winter night our room had a lovely fire that kept us warm. Our hostess helped unload the car, brought us some drinks and left us to settle into our large room.
Breakfast was three courses with drinks, breads, a cold buffet and a hot menu. Our waiter had never met an American and so we were pleased by his enthusiasm for meeting guests from a new locale. All in, the staff was delightful. the room was large and stocked with coffee, teas, and biscuits. The water (if you are wondering) from the tap is fine. The bathroom has one of the largest soaking tubs I have seen with oils (burning) and bath salts.
The grounds were fun. There is an unheated pool and circular yard; there are little walkways here and there, and a garden in the back.
and...if you love dogs there is a large husky that we spent at least an hour playing with. We so missed our dog; this was an exceptional treat to find a sweet large dog here. We would go back for the lodging, but the dog sealed the deal!!
