Beautiful scenery. 5 star rooms! Loved the open plan room with a fire place and free standing bath behind a glass devider. Excellent service. Friendly & dedicated staff. Superb food. Alot of thought went into all the small little details making this place very special and unique.

We only had 1 night there, a break from the Garden Drive. The room was beautiful, the staff is great and the surrounding landscape is breath taking. We ate dinner at the Emily Moon restaurant and the food (steaks) was delicious and the local wine is better than others.

Love Emily Moon! To dine there is a joy. To stay over and wake for breakfast is an indulgence. But moreover to experience the place, to revel in the nooks & crannies and the architectural eccentricities and the style and the views and the exuberance of the place: that's the thrill of it. Of course you'll eat well & drink...

Alas it was only a one night stop over whilst on a solo adventure, but it was worth it. View from my lodge was beautiful, lodge itself was very clean and nicely decorated. Restaurant was very good with the food being excellent. All in all a lovely, friendly place to stay!
