Very enjoyable!
Mercia van der Walt Mar 2013
This year was my 2nd time having stayed at the establishment. The 1st time it was with a colleague and this year on my own. On both occasions I had a wonderful experience. I commend your staff (reception to waiters) for their undivided attention and friendliness. I thought the treatment was going to be different since I'm black and the place being frequented by whites, but the level of maturity from your staff was phenomenal. I can't complain. Thanks again and will make sure I use your services next year again. I thank you.
