This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in, and coming from someone who stays in many hotels... this accolade is well-deserved.
I only have one small complaint, and it's due to a technicality in communication with reception staff. I booked a room with twin beds, as I was travelling with my mother. When i checked in, the room allocated to us had one large bed. Turns out you can't just say 'twin beds'... according to the receptionist (Candie, I think) you have to specifically ask for the twin beds to be 'split' (all the 'double' beds have twin bed bases and can be split out). So if you want 2 beds, you can't just say 'give me twin beds' - you have to say 'split the twin beds out'. Ridiculous, i know. I was also informed by her that the reason they hadn't seen my 'special' request in the first place was because i added it to a comments section that they 'don't normally check'. There you have it.
Other than that issue (which was very quickly and efficiently sorted out by Brenda, the duty manager), I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay. The staff in this hotel are lovely and will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay - their service is amazing. The room was fantastic, and the location is perfect. It's pricey, but it's worth every cent.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of a 2 week trip travelling the Garden Route. The hotel is quite simply stunning. Everything is to an exceptionally high standard, the rooms were large and spacious with a private garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful, I felt nothing was too much or a problem for them. The food in the restaurant was delicious, so much so we ate there both nights. The spa session I had was bliss. And we even took advantage of the private cinema/theatre to watch a movie (while eating our desserts and a bottle of wine). Would definitely stay here again.
