My husband and I stayed for a night while traveling the western cape. Highly recommend staying here, staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was beautiful. Especially the breakfast, best we had on our trip. I also highly recommend the morning meerkat experience...More

Hi Lucian. We were very disappointed with the property and overall attitude. We had bookied a river view room and all we could see was tall grass. There was a power outage and the property does not have a generator (except for the owner's house next door!!) I would look for somewhere else in the area. We were there in January and it was very hot so without power, no air conditioning. Hope this helps
