Watching my step brother propose to his fiancee was the best, and the staff made every accommodation to make their moment as special as possible. The food was divine, so flavourful and delicious. The service was excellent. Tip top.

Emily Moon has always been and still is my favourite restaurant. The landscape.. Setting, views, food, decor...fabulous! Quick service, stunning food... It is a must to visit..booking essential...I like the confirmation text. I have not stayed at the lodge but I can only imagine how exquisite it will be.

However we all... More

That means you will have relaxing and private views from your room and a similar outlook from the restaurant. The rooms are in fact spacious lodges, homely, comfortable and well equipped with tasteful decor. They come... More

Our family of 4 stayed in two rooms with each having its own private viewing decks over the river. The rooms were very well appointed and the fireplace was just stunning. We ate all our meals in the Resturant, which was excellent. We will definitely return again!
