Very stunning and relaxing place. Always clean and food excellent. Do not know why some people need a torch there. Lighting adequate. Staff and owners always friendly.pleasant and hospitable. Splendid place to enjoy your stay. Warm atmosphere.

Most striking aspect of our visit was warmth of greeting. All S Africa properties have been friendly but this was a notch above. Beyond that the property is a good reflection of its country lodge title and website description. So more quaint and unusual than generic modern properties and reflecting country life , e.g. breakfast finishes at 9 rather that...

I am surprised to see some negative reviews here and glad I didn't read them first ! The accommodation is in cottages in the beautiful grounds. Ours was huge with an open fireplace on the lounge - a big bathroom with a corner bath and an open shower. The area by the pool is very pretty and beautifully maintained. It...

The previous two nights we had stayed at an excellent hotel so to come here was a stark contrast and disappointing. Everything is old fashioned and distressed. We had to share a fridge, television and tea making facilities with four other rooms in a common area - not very satisfactory. The evening meal was an only average standard but the...

Stayed here for one night. Room large and clean but very dark. Torch required. Grounds lovely. Disappointing buffet dinner in a large somewhat dismal room. Breakfast average. Staff very pleasant and friendly!

We stayed 2 nights in a room on the roadside of the restaurant. We expected some road noise and it was reasonable. What we didn't expect was the frog chorus most of the night. OK you're in a farm setting but these guys kept it going all night, must be spring. The buffet was adequate and wines reasonable. WiFi worked...

Wonderful, traditional dutch style country lodge, chalets, set in beautiful well kept gardens. This felt like home from home the moment we arrived because the hospitality was five star. The proprietors, Albertus and Matilda de Bod were so friendly and helpful. They arranged a private 2 hour ostrich farm tour through Matilda's brothers farm which was excellent and the genuine...
