Pros: The warm welcome and stunning location
We had a very comfortable one night stay. It was a quiet time md-week and there were few guests so we received a lot of attention.

The hotel is run down and not suitable for South Africa's standard of accommodation. They need to be stripped of their trading license. I just donated my money and looked for alternative accommodation.

Only stay here if you absolutely need toPosted Jun 4, 2014
The condition of the hotel is in a very bad state. The paint was peeling off the walls in our room, there was a dark damp patch of mildew above the entrance to the bathroom door, the furniture was extremely old and out-dated, the bathroom was old, very basic, and the shower curtain blew against you and stuck to your legs while you tried to shower. There were no additional plug points to plug in our phones to charge, and message stuck to the wall asking that the guests not plug in any additional appliances as it will cause to power to trip, thus. The restaurants food was extremely average and of poor quality, the chairs were dirty or stained (not sure) and very old, some were torn. I didn't feel comfortable eating any of the food and didn't think it was worth the price. They forgot to charge a bill to our account and we received an email a day after checking out request we do an EFT. The location is really far out of the way from anything, there are no restaurants nearby like the website says, you have to drive at least 20kms to the nearest restaurant, most of which is a dirt road. This hotel needs a serious upgrade, the surroundings, although remote, are beautiful, but the standard of the hotel unfortunately puts a damper on it. I get the feeling that the owner either isn't around much to maintain the standard or they either just don't know any better. Either way, some serious refurbishment needs to take place to bring the "hotel" up to standard. It's a 1 star at best.

Top place to stay. One of the best ever.Posted Jan 27, 2014
We planned to stay one night but stayed for three. We loved being at this beautiful place. We can only recommand this fulheartedly. An earlier command on reaching the hotel is uther nonsence. We had no problem and the gravelroad is deffenitly one of the better once we drove in in SA. No reason to stay away at all. Again: highly recommanded. And if you are there, please hug Bella for us. We love that dog :-)
