    Beautiful setting, quiet, outstanding gardens, and lots of monkeys, located near the giraffe center. The food was fresh and tasty. The knowledgeable staff was friendly. The room was large, netted, comfortable. I will return on my next trip.

    My reservations include breakfast. But if I also decide to have lunch or dinner at the House, can I just purchase it then? If so, what is the price range?
