Our stay in Arbor was brilliant and very peaceful. I can recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful outing. The room are very good and tidy. The only area of concern is breakfast. If they just add some variety on the breakfast things will be more than 100 percent. We had a fantastic time.

I was stunned by the good bed, well kept and arranged linen, beautifully...

My husband and I spent one night here en route from Swaziland to the Drakensburg region and it really was an oasis in an otherwise industrial area. It was very easy to find from the main highway, and upon entering the property you suddenly feel transported from the busy world surrounding it to peaceful gardens. The buildings are located on...

The owner, who we met, is passionate about here establishment. If in the area again,...
