          Very friendly staff, excellent food. The owners made us very welcome and took time each day to have a chat. The view of the mountains was wonderful especially with the snow on top. The rondavels are very comfortable especially with under floor heating.

          They’re actually quite relaxed about the dress code. Long trousers for men, but I saw many wearing jeans.
