          De Doornkraal is a little gem for those who love beautiful things of the past. Do not expect luxury but a blast from the past. The atmosphere is magnificent and essential. One advice: taste the cuisine of Christopher Peppas and be infected by his joy.

          We stayed there in September last year and had absolutely no problem in booking. I booked on line and we had a large room for the two of us. The connecting room was free so we could have had that as well.
