This restaurant/lodge is a real gem. You are made to feel at home from the moment you arrive and although we threw quite a few curve balls at Tanya, the wonderful owner, she handled everything with great patience and efficiency. None of the issues were of her making I may add. The rooms are perfectly appointed and there is nothing...

On arrival you feel the friendly atmosphere and experience the well trained staff with a smile. The rooms are spacious and individual decorated in a kind of Austrian, African manor style. From our suite balcony we overlooked the golf course and...

We only stayed one night and I wish we had stayed there longer. The staff was fantastic. The rooms were amazing. We had dinner under the gazebo. Absolutely delicious. We went to South Africa for our 10 year anniversary and we couldn't have started out a better way.

We loved this beautiful Austrian Hotel, located next to a golf course. Our room was large and very comfortable. The staff were wonderful, and the restaurant incredible. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here for our three days and were never disappointed.

We had booked a deluxe room and were shown to the loft room. It was very spacious and luxurious with a lovely view over the pool to the golf course. There were robes, tea and coffee facilities, a fridge and even a complimentary carafe if sherry. The restaurant has a small menu with a daily special of one starter and...

Having booked two executive suites and having this confirmed, we arrived to find that the lodge did not have our booking. This can happen., but the attitude of the manger was unacceptable. She was aggressive, unpleasant and first told us we were lying and never had a booking, then found our reservation but told us we had cancelled it, and...
