What a surprise, an actual wooden hotel, with fantastic roofs and windows, The staircase is amazing and the corridors are deceptively sized....

We stayed at this hotel for two nights whilst travelling the garden route.

A 4 Star property within walking distance to the waterfront , this hotel is just about OK. Rooms (we were booked in a triple room) are small, views nothing much to talk about. Breakfast was passable and the same on all days. , no live counters for hot food. All in all, just about OK.
