Thank you for allowing us to arrive late (20:00) and still leave our key at main gate, much appreciated.

The people was friendly, one or two things in the honeymoon room could have being refilled, and we expected some of the food at the breakfast to have being kept warm.

A very different experience. Some interesting items such as the Shebeen Pub and numerous animals.

We had a very good stay and everything was awesome. We liked the surrounding and the whole setting of the place inside and out. We enjoyed sitting outside on the stoep(veranda) and watching the animals walk by, the ambiance of the establishment was really great. Jacque was really great, he was very sweet and informative. We would definitely go back for sure.
