Fabulous hotel with excellent attentive staff and superb amenities. The three golf courses are a highlight and the Links course can only be played if you are a hotel guest. Food at the hotel was excellent and very fairly priced. Excellent service from the portering staff delivering guests and their golf clubs to the three courses.

Our first stop on our first trip to South Africa was for several nights at this top quality location. Our Junior Suite was excellently laid out and furnished. The staff & facilities are excellent and all the eating places served us well. The key, though, was the excellent golf facilities on the three courses. The surroundings are superb with corresponding...

We stayed here as an overnight stop along the Garden Route. As a result we didn't fully use the facilities. It does revolve around the golf. Facilities and service were excellent. I should think this would be a beautiful spot for golfers

From the moment we drove through the lovely gates this was a tranquil haven. The service is outstanding wherever you go, the rooms are beautiful and the linen immaculate. The rooms are huge. There is jogging routes around the golf course. An amazing place. I can recommend it.
