Just spent 3 nights here and can only say it is perfect in every respect. We have stayed in more than 10 " Five Star " hotels on the Garden Route on two recent visits and this will in future be our priority destination. The rooms, views, location, staff and above all the hospitality are truly excellent.

A wonderful combination of stylish, design environment with warmhearted, familiar atmosphere. It started with warm welcoming including drinks and strawberries dipped in chocolate, beautiful room, valuable and very good restaurant recommendations/reservations and helpful organization of cab drive for the evening.
