Our greeting on arrival was very friendly. The room was spacious & clean & well appointed. The view over Groot Brakrivier was great. The pool area was clean & I was offered a drink while relaxing there. Breakfast was well presented & there was enough staff to handle any queries & clear dishes. All in all a very pleasant stay.
