We celebrate our 20th anniversary by staying at the same hotel we stayed for our honeymoon. Very pleasant stay with friendly and helpful staff. We liked the quiet atmosphere. Very beautiful country. There was also a very talented 'pianoman' at the restaurant.

Dear X4871HPannec Thank you for the review and compliments. Our pianist is called Willian, and he plays most evenings. The amazing fact is that he can't read music, and simply plays on hearing! We look forward to your next visit, Kind regards, P-J Basson General Manager

Well I am not an Art Deco fan however this really enhanced the feeling of taking you away from the concrete jungle and city life. Rooms and Amenities were clean, Staff Friendly and attentive. The natural tranquillity of the place allows you to relax easily. Do yourself a favour and enjoy a candle lit dinner with traditional south african food....
