                  The outdoors is truly amazing and beautiful. Indoors is very antique and farm style so be sure to appreciate vintage before booking.

                  When I read the one negative review I found of Hornbills Forest Getaway, I wondered if I had stayed at the same Hornbills! I spent the night in Yellowwood Cottage, a quaint cottage which was clean and had no odd smells. It was warmed by a blazing fire, and it had a very comfortable bed with an electric blanket. The shower and toilet were spotless. The room was set in a beautiful garden with rolling lawns to a little stream which separated the garden from a magnificent indigenous forest... an extremely peaceful and relaxing location. My hosts were attentive and I thoroughly enjoyed my short...

                  We arrived at night. And because we were traveling as a pair (two ladies), the gentleman offered to let us stay in the outside cottage. Little did we know how uncomfortable it would be. The place was extremely dirty (I cannot emphasize this enough). The bathroom was in such a bad condition. When taking a shower, water changes abruptly from extremely hot to very cold! The shower drain has some creepy insects / clogging. The shower door and the floor are covered in black algae. One cannot sit on the toilet seat - due to the dirty and overall disgusting look and feel of the place. The place has...

                  Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Hornbills. Beautiful picturesque gardens alongside the forest. Amazing hosts and extremely accommodating. Highly recommended to everyone. Will definitely stay again.

                  On our first night the linen was not looking clean, even extra one in the cabinet
