This is a very friendly, comfortable and well run place to stay on the 'Garden Route'. It is on the edge of a very pleasant and interesting small town. Although the Manor is on a main (but not very busy) road, the layout of the rooms is such that they all face inwards, overlooking the beautiful gardens and there was...

We stayed in the Morning Sky Suite which is very large and comfortable. It has its own terrace (not that we needed that) and is lovely decorated. The garden is very nice, large and peaceful. Breakfast is very good and made with love for the little details. We had dinner at the Koornlands and can highly recommend it...very fresh dishes,...

A lovely guest house with beautiful suites. We over looked the lily pond and had a private sunbathing area. The pool was a good size and beautifully clean. The gardens were lovely. The breakfast area was good either a terraced area or inside. There was a good choice and all was well presented. The owners were very friendly and made...

Lovely swimming pool and pool area for an end of the day relax. It also has a game reserve at the end of the garden where zebras can be seen. The room we stayed in was poorly furnished and faced the road. Most rooms face the pool and garden - make sure you book one of those.

We booked the morning sky suite which is beautiful...with its small terrace overlooking the lily filled pond and a separate sunbathing terrace with sunbeds and umbrella leading via a floral arch to the swimming pool. The suite itself has a lovely king-size bed, dressing room and large bathroom. The grounds of the guest house are a delight...with lots of different...

My boyfriend and I only stayed one night here and it was over too quickly! The room was light and airy and the beds were really comfortable. Pool area was really pleasant and it was nice to be able to pop down to the bottom of the gardens and see the zebras. The gardens were beautiful - lovely setting. Good...

Beautiful place incredible value for money We only spent one night at the Rothman Manor in their apartment, it was absolutely huge, a lovely living room, kitchen, massive bathroom and bedroom and a private balcony overlooking the pool. The grounds are lovely with their hot tub over looking the zebra and the springbok in the meadow below. The whole place...

The owners have gone out if their way in every aspect of this property. The effort gone into ensuring that guests every need is there to be sampled and enjoyed. Maybe adding the choice of low fat milk would have ticked every box. Breakfast choices were there to please everyone.

What can I say about this wonderful place that will keep it exclusively for myself and close friends only! From the moment we arrived here it oozed tranquility, friendly courteous staff, fabulously appointed accommodation, fantastic surroundings and for us to see, for the first time, Springboks and Zebra so close at some point that you may have been able to...
