Had a wonderful night's stay before setting off on our drive along the Garden Route. The rooms/suites are enormous and every detail has been well thought out. The staff were so helpful and kind and we enjoyed our stay it immensely.

This is a True Art Hotel with an amazing Collection and Standard of Service. We were in the Villa Rooms which are across the Road from the Main Hotel but these are Beautiful and have an Amazing Collection of Art Work All related to World Cup. Breakfast was Lovely but Serving Staff somewhat Stretched.
