A wonderful place to stay. Peace and quiet - just the sound of running water. Cottage 43 is just the best view of the mountains. Staff very friendly and helpful. We had difficulty finding the place - more detailed instructions would be helpful, especially for foreign (non-ZA) tourists. Tips for visitors: (1) the lighting of the site is subdued and does not always work - carry a torch, (2) the wifi does not work on Apple devices such as iPhones and iPads.

A Hotel that is brilliant in every way. Beautiful rooms the food in the restaraunt is world class, and the staff are wonderful both helpful and friendly. What can we say about the surroundings and those mountains. We certainly will be back, however the down side and we realise its not the hotels fault its a South African thing its the state of the roads it just takes the edge off ones visit and I doubt they will get any better, sad for the sake of tourism.
