A lovely relaxing place after a long journey. We already booked to stay there on our return. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Very affordable for overnight stay. Pity that the swimming pool was not clean. We tried phoning the resort, to book for overnight on our way back to SA, but the phone was not answered. We had to book in at Noordoewer Guest house.
