This was the second time in two years that I had the privilege of taking 30 visitors from Sweden to the hotel. From all accounts I received a very favourable response to their stay. I will surely again make use of the facilities when I next time pass the lovely Garden Route.

Bit too pricy for what is offered. Can't be compared to for example Diaz, although almost same price.
