What a beautiful, cosy, stylish place. Love the view across the valley. And a very relaxed atmosphere in the lobby area too. Feels like you’re staying in somebody’s (dream) home.

It was definitely the coolest place we stayed in SA - such a nice relaxed feel to the place. And there were lots of nice extra touches like a coffee machine and Netflix available in your room. We didn’t use it as the views out of our room were spectacular!
