We stayed at this hotel on a tour of South Africa. It is definitely the best hotel that my partner or I have ever stayed in. From the welcome meeting to checking out, every detail was attended to perfection. Beautiful surroundings with lovely decor. Staff are pleasant and so obliging (none will hang around for tips, you have to almost...

We unfortunately only stayed here one night as a stop off when travelling the Garden Route. What an amazing place. We stayed in Suite 9. My son had his own bedroom and ensuite to the left of the entrance porch. Rooms were clean and everything was catered for, including a selection of DVDs and games to keep him entertained. Our...

I'm not generally given to superlatives, but this hotel really does take the biscuit. The staff we extremely polite, helpful, knowledgeable and informative; the room was superb, including superb bath and shower, lovely bedroom and open fire should you want one; the food was out of this world, with every dish made to order (which did make service a little...

We went to this lodge on a trip around South Africa and it was equal to the best of the accommodation visited. From the beginning our party were made very welcome, our cottage was situated at the end of a pretty garden and the room was fitted with traditional furniture. We had Bed breakfast and Dinner and the food was...

This beautiful hotel set in fabulous gardens gives guests a warm welcome and a tour of the old colonial farmhouse at the centre of the operation. Guests are then taken to their individual thatched cottage accommodation amongst the lawns and sumptuous flower beds. The bedroom is pretty and well appointed and the bathroom excellent. Food and drink at the hotel...

Fellow travellers from the UK need to understand that a South African guesthouse is much grander than its UK counterpart; think small exclusive country hotel. This guesthouse is midway between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay and, turning off the main highway, you travel down a dirt road (locals may call this an untarred road) to the entrance to the estate, where...

We stayed in the stunning cottage with private pool and beautiful gardens. The staff were brilliant and the food delicious. A g&t in the gardens before dinner from their extensive collection was a real highlight! Thank you for everything. We're sending all our friends to come and stay with you! Such good value for money too.

Stayed in the family suite for 3 wonderful nights. Absolutely beautiful setting, great attentive service and incredibly child-friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we were never made to feel that they were anything other than valued guests! The food was excellent (we especially enjoyed the lavish breakfasts) and the rooms comfortable and well appointed. We made the most...
