Perfect place for quiet and relaxation
Posted Jan 18, 2017
Room 61 at the hotel is particularly charming, situated over two floors, and with its own secluded rear garden. It has a very 'homely' feel to it.
One evening, as we left our room to dine in the hotel restaurant, the door security latch fell off (I know it's not supposed too...). We placed it to one side, and I was going to report this the following day. To my surprise, the security latch had been replaced by the time we returned later that evening. How's that for efficient service ...
The gardens around the hotel are beautiful, manicured in places, and left natural down towards and within the woods. While not on the same scale as Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens close by, they are peaceful and endearing, and in some ways are better. The resident ducks are a feature within the gardens, and you will see them waddling around various parts of the estate, with the exception of the two pool areas, to which they are not allowed entry.
Breakfast is relaxed and informal, with outdoor seating. The food is freshly prepared and delicious, and the service attentive and efficient. I can definitely recommend the smoked fish cakes, which are very tasty.
We found all the staff to be exceptionally friendly and courteous throughout our week's stay.
