This as an above average hotel situated right on the edge of the stunning Katse Dam.
The rooms in the main hotel are a decent size but are looking a little tired and in need of a face lift. They are however clean and tidy and the beds are big and comfortable.
The lounge, private bar and restaurant are all fine. The staff were very friendly and attentive; they made us a wonderful log fire in the lounge where we sat in comfortable chairs and drunk decent SA wines at around R120 a bottle. They charged us corkage of R30 to bring in our own bottle of brandy, not bad at all.
Supper was above average, from a very comprehensive a-la-carte menu. Unfortunately there was no fresh trout available, despite a trout farm being located just up the road and the first page on the menu being devoted to trout dishes.
The charming hotel manager spent at least 15-minutes chatting at out table. He explained that there are local supply issue with respect to trout.
Noise from the exuberant kitchen staff was a trifle excessive, but added to the local charm :)
The early breakfast was excellent and extensive. Each individual's choice being correctly catered for; crispy bacon, soft eggs etc. being correctly delivered to each guest. Plenty of good coffee was served too.
