Special Find

We had a lovely short stay at this quaint estate property. We were greeted with enthusiasm and the entire stay was equally as well serviced. We had dinner and then breakfast in the morning. The dinner was absolutely delicious...beautifully prepared. The breakfast was so abundant that we struggled making choices. The service was impeccable and the staff was delightful. We did not use the swimming pool or spa services. It was a bit cool for swimming and we did not have time to take advantage of the spa. The decor in this older estate has a contemporary African twist with numerous African crafts and artwork adorning the walls. It was most pleasant and I highly recommend it.

A sad experience in a beautiful place

This is a very nice boutique hotel. Our overnight might have been perfect but for a very disappointing arrival, having to change room because faulty heating. When I left a comment about less than adequate arrival, management was offended and responded with lots a baloney. That eliminated any positive view I otherwise would have had of this expensive place.

Nothing but praise

Great location. Just up from the main street in a lovely area and beautiful hotel grounds.We had a great check in and offer of an upgrade which frankly we did not need as the room we had booked was lovely. . The buildings are full of character and very well modernised. The Team Members were very helpful for all our needs and they clean your car every day! Nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant for breakfast and Dinner served very fine food and plenty of it. A nice bar with not quite a hundred gins!Great attention to detail to make your stay a great experience. This was one of seven hotels during our visit and whilst I would not want to put any at the top of the list we would stay here again for sure.
