                      It was 45degrees the weekend we were there, so we were greatful for the aircon, fan and blockout curtains in the room. Sam was a wonderful host. Lovely shady garden, excellent and friendly staff. Will definitely be back.

                      The only word coming to mind was underwhelming. Firstly, SafariNow booked a room that we did not select, which was a mistake from Safari's side. However, we found the owner unsympathetic- the booking mistake was not her fault however she simply could not be bothered. She kept on saying all the rooms are the same- they are not. There is a difference between the Tretchikoff room and the other four rooms. And then a few other things: first, there is no tea and coffee station in the four rooms; you have to go out into the shared lounge to make some for yourself. Not the worst but not great. Second...

                      RED TIN ROOF is great. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The food is good, the staff are super. Riebeek Kasteel is a lovely dorp. The Africa room is a bit dark, and the cushions on outside stoep need a clean.

                      We enjoyed our stay so much! When we arrived we received complimentary sparkling wine, which was unexpected and immediately made us feel welcome. It was a sunny day and we took a dip in the pool while enjoying our drinks. The friendly staff brought us towels and then we had to get ready for a wedding. The room is nice and spacious with a massive shower. The room looked clean, beautiful and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was so delicious as well! We will definitely be back!
