A beautiful place. Lovely comfortable rooms. The gardens were fabulous. My husband and son went on the cultural tour with Bheki? which they enjoyed very much. The weather was quite wet when we stayed and my youngest son enjoyed all the frogs that came out to play! If there is a criticism I would say there wasn't much info in the rooms about the Inn ; we found the Spa and gym by accident and would have used both a bit more had we been aware of them. Enjoyed talking to the lovely Francis at dinner and breakfast.

It was a pleasant surprise to arrive in a cosy and welcoming foyer on a miserably wet Saturday night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the scrumptious breakfast in the morning! We were however woken a little too early from slumber as newly arrived guests trundled their wheeled suitcases noisily down the tiled corridor! Other than that our stay was short but sweet :) Thanks.
