A well run hotel with lovely grounds, great food, spacious and comfortable suites and lovely staff. As an amateur bird watcher I particularly enjoyed lying on my sunbed with binoculars in hand spoting a great variety of birds including beautiful sunbird, senegal coucal, reb billed hornbill etc
My only niggle would be that dinner service could be quite slow, two and a half hours for 3 courses, but im sure this was due to the busy Christmas period. Some people enjoy long winded dinners and that is fine, im sadly not one of them.The food is superb and the chef Jonathon is a true perfectionist in presentation and standard.
