My husband and I only stayed for a night on our way back to Johannesburg from the Southern Drakensbergs, but it was a very pleasant stay. the main building and the common grounds in the property are truly beautiful - they really make you feel relaxed.
We stayed in the round room, which had a rustic charm feel to it and was very clean. If you're a showerer, just note that this room only has a tub (super nice for the cold weather) with a hand shower, but it's hard to shower standing up - we didn't mind much. The only thing that could have made it better is to get toiletries (we didn't even get a bar of soap!), which we expected given the price. It might have been just an oversight and we didn't ask, as we only showered there once.
We did not have dinner there (they offer a 3 course menu every night) but it smelled yum. We did get their dessert (they were super flexible in providing it even though we asked for it late) and it was delicious.
It all feels very safe, as it is gated and has parking right outside the rooms and the service was very good without being overwhelming.
