We had a lovely time. The wonderful family atmosphere made it a very enjoyable time. The kids had so much fun at the river, on the bowling green and tennis courts. The bunnies and ponies were also great to watch. We will definitely return for our annual holiday at The Nest. Thank you.

A comfortable country hotel, quite a 'blast from the past'. You receive a warm welcome, good service, a tasty variety of food and friendly, helpful staff. Added to this, an excellent view of the Berg. A real value for money get away.

Really enjoyed our stay here. A step back in time where you can be content to read a book for hours on the front verandah or go off exploring the mountains, rivers or local arts and craft shops.
