An unexpected nice find
Posted Feb 16, 2016
We booked this hotel at the pst minute and very happy we did.
The check in was great. Key and check in card was ready when we arrived. Although no one was available to assist with luggage, the rooms were so close it wasn't neccessary. The check in staff were friendly and helpful.
The room was large and has a beautiful view of the Midalnd's valley and overlooks the stunning rim flow/infinity pool that stretches right across the garden.
The bed was a king and very comfortable. The rooms are a bit dated and would probably need to be upgraded at some stage to keep it's 4-Star rating. The bathrooms also need a facelift. But that does not detract from the charm of this hotel.
Dinner was great. A small but interesting menu. Our meal was one of the better one's we've had at a hotel in recent months. Service was great too.
We were leaving early the following morning and the staff packed us a breakfast for our travels. We were swimming the Midmar so the fruit, banana, boiled eggs and juice was the perfect addition.
I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a great country hotel. It has charm, beauty and is situated in one of the best parts of the Midland's.
A big shout out to the reception and dinner teams. They were all friendly and helpful.
This hotel is not marble and stone, but it has character and that's exactly what we needed.
