10/10 Exceptional

Romantic and peaceful stay
This is a cracking little gem of a hotel. All the staff are super friendly, the food is excellent and has a personal touch from the chef's. Rooms are very comfortable and sitting in the garden in front of the wood fire after dinner was so relaxing. The spa treatments are highly recommended. All in all a perfect place to stay. Will be back when we are back in the area. Thank you for a great stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Stayed for one night on a layover for flights at Tambo. Could not recommend this place more highly. Unique small boutique hotel in safe location with all the amenities. Ease of access to/from airport with friendly and helpful drivers - even helping with my luggage and walking me through check-in to ensure no problems before they left. On-site staff thorough and accommodating. Dinner and breakfast high quality food and service. Room clean and interesting.

I love this hotel. After 10 years of going to various hotels around the airport I finally found the one that I will return to time and again. The owners are amazing and treat you like old friends. The hotel is luxurious and makes you feel special.

Lovely staff; they couldn’t do enough to help. Picked us up late at night from train and thereafter looked after us superbly. This is a small boutique hotel which is an oasis of peace, close to the main airport. Highly recommended.

8/10 Very good

Decent alternative
Very convenient to airport. Room is somewhat small. Only access is via exterior. Not good if it rains. Food is mixed in quality. Did a very good game dish. Breakfasts were not very good.
