Wow, we stayed in a suite which was very reasonably priced. Neat as a pin andvery comfy. The staff are friendly and the restaurant food was good with a good selection. The grounds on the property is awesome. Little animal pet stations with chickens, rabbits, etc. Great for smaller kids. Nice pool and beautiful setting. Will definitely visit again.

What a great find a very comfortable well managed hotel! An ideal country inn that ticked all our boxes deserves more Grading Stars than it has from the food to the Staff Management and ambience perspective. We will definitely return and recommend.

Magic place in the Bush! Highly recommend. Very comfortable and clean, Lots of birding can be done. Management can arrange activities around the hotel. Kruger National Park is 130 kms away, so a day visit is very possible. Game viewing also nearby. Highly recommended to overseas visitors who holiday by themselves!
