6/10 Good

It was raining very hard and we had to run to our room in the rain, there is no cover to the rooms. The rooms are boring, brown and terracota, there is no special attention given to the rooms or bathroom. The pillows are way too high so you cant get comfortable.

8/10 Very good

We only had electricity in one or two lamps our entire weekend, whether load shedding was on or off. Even when we heard the generator running, will still didn’t have lights, kettle, etc. We still had lovely hot water, so it was all a bit strange. Thank goodness for a lovely fire and early nights.
