Felt like family! Very accomodating
Great family stay! The food was great, and very accomodating as we had vegans, vegetarians and lactose free guests in the family to deal with. They brought wonderful floaty toys to the pool for the kids and made our stay really relaxing and nice. The staff was so nice it was as if we had been friends forever.

Comfortable, relaxing and exceptional service.
We enjoyed an amaizing weekend with our every need taken care off by Alison and her team! They left no stone unturned to make it enjoyable and we made the most of the garden and Richards' beautiful koi ponds. We did not even explore the town much and rather opted to stay at the establishments comfort and relaxing environment. All the staff were helpful, friendly and respected our privacy. Thank you Alison! Johan & Michelle

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!
