We had a lovely stay. The rooms are clean and neat with everything you need. The beds are comfy. And there is beautiful green grass everywhere! The only improvement I can think of is to maybe put a aircon in all the rooms as it gets very warm in summer.

The place is beautifully situated. However the advert says Buffet Dinner @ R160 per person and R80 per child. This was not a buffet as one knows a buffet. It was R160 per plate of food, which consisted of Rice, Gravy, sweet potato, carrots, leg of lamb, chicken and a salad. Dessert was extra, which is misleading a a buffet includes starters, main course and dessert. Our dinner for 2 adults and 1 child cost R700+ for 1 plate of food, 2 seconds are charged for as well as dessert was an extra charge.
