    Can 10/10 unreservedly recommend.

    I don't even know where to begin. Every single tiny detail about this place I loved. I was bleak when it was time to check out.

    Do yourself the favour and go and stay here!

    Our stay was very relaxing - the staff really went out of their way to help us as I had a stomach-bug when we arrived there, so they called the nearest pharmacy to stay open for us, so that I could get some medicine. Charlotte is a very kind and helpful young woman. Beautiful surroundings and the breakfast is 6 stars!

    Pure luxury at a great price!

    This was the absolute best hotel we have ever stayed at. It is extremely luxurious and the staff go above and beyond for you. We have never experienced such fantastic service. We only stayed here one night in transit to a safari game reserve but we wish we had stayed here 3 nights and done Kruger on our own. The food was outstanding, the staff was genuine and kind, the building and property were an architectural dream. We saw giraffes, zebras, warthogs and impalas within the reserve. We will be back
