Guest Reviews

  • Lovely suite, excellent cuisine, gardens delightful and ‘rent a dog or 2 for the walks’. What more can one want? This is our first SA trip and thank you. We will be back.

  • Had an amazing relaxing time with hiking, canoeing and horse-riding. Although of course the best thing had to be the service and food. Thank you all for making us feel so welcome, especially the dogs.

  • Absolutely amazing weekend. Food an absolute treat. I think we will move here permanently! Staff were so friendly – if I can’t stay here I think I will need to take them home with me. Thanks so much.

  • Wonderful 2 days. From the welcome homemade lemonade on arriving, fantastic accommodation to the indescribably good food. The friendliness of everyone, and the dogs made our stay very memorable.
