    perfect hospitality

    Just one night but will return. The building and grounds are beautiful and the rooms are very tastefully and pleasingly decorated. We were welcomed with cold fresh juice in the bar/lounge and then G&T while we signed in. Everybody from Alison to the man who carried our bags and cleaned the car were very friendly and helpful. We shall return

    Excellent hospitality!

    The staff is so accommodating, they'll do anything to ensure you have a good stay. We were the only ones staying that night (off season) and we literally had the entire staff looking after us, setting up our fireplace, leaving warm bottles, offering snacks, making dinner reservations, washing our car, etc. etc. Highly recommended place to stay as part of the garden route!

    Tolles Hotel mit ausgezeichnetem Service in wunderschöner Umgebung. Das Personal hat versucht uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein, was wirklich sehr angenehm war.
