Esther's was recommended by a Swiss friend. We have been to Esthers on more than one occasion, always good. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is relaxed and perfect for a lunch out of Johannesburg. Esther and her husband are excellent hosts and are always available.
very impressed. the gardens were beautiful and immaculately maintained. The perfect weekend getaway. Great value for money, clean and stylish rooms. The hosts were very helpful and the service was great. we'll definitely be back...and will bring friends with us!
Thank you so much for the wonderful service, we had a spectacular stay at your place. The food and wine was just out of this world, plus the personal attention we got from the host Esther. We’ll be back soonest.
We descended on Esther and Werner en masse. Nine people including 3 kids, who were accommodated really well. Esther comes across as a little stern at first, but she is actually really friendly and helpful and organised all sorts of things for us- including a last minute taxi to ORT on Easter Monday! Food was amazing. The wine and beer flowed. We could ask anything, and it was all considered and produced where possible. Kids had a great time. Safe and secure. Rooms comfortable (a few ants here and there, so what, it's Africa), great showers, Cradle of Mankind attractions were excellent (bit of a drive away, but not difficult). Carl's yoga sessions every morning were fabulous, and he also did treatments for us. A really great home-away-from-home. Will go back if I can!
Ayurveda at Esthers I stayed at Esthers in March 2019 and had booked 6 days of Ayurveda Treatments with Karl. I needed a break and to wind down of a stressful time. With their new pavilion, they have created a wonderful environment. Every day I enjoyed at least one treatment. Karl proposed me a 6-day therapy program containing different elements. For each one he used pure organic oil and herbs from India. He takes care of you in a very professional way. I really got the feeling my body cleansed from toxic materials. Personally, I particularly like both the anti-stress back massages with herbal back pack as well as the de-stressing oil massages with shirodara pot. I would also recommend the dry sand herb massage. Another nice surprise is Karl’s commitment: with great dedication he got me every day more relaxed! Days after returning home, I was still noticing the great benefit of these treatments. I highly recommend Karl’s treatments; I will certainly return. Thank you Karl and Esther for the wonderful stay. Until next time.…
