Wonderful hosts and great rooms
We stayed here for two separate stays on our trip to South Africa- the first time the room was stunning - huge and with beautiful new bath and shower in the room, plus free sweets and drinks. The second time was a slightly less nice room but still huge, well stocked and very comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent and the hosts were extremely kind offering to drive us down to local restaurants in the evening and pick us up. The resident pets are also an absolute delight to hang out with!
