Excellent lodging with personalized and very friendly service, down to the last detail. The owners really go the extra mile, and the food was also exquisite. Amazing walks in the area, and close driving range to other local attractions, like Kaapschehoop and Dullstroom. Will definitely stay there again!!

Thankfully Sean had asked the day before we departed if we would like to have dinner on arrival (something that we had overlooked in our planning) so were relieved to have a delicious three course meal waiting. Our room and bath were spacious...
