We were welcomed by the guard, who took us to reception. Checking in was seamless and included completion of covid questionnaire and recording of temperature. Rambo assisted us with our luggage and took us to our suite. The Madiba suite is exceptional and we got an orientation around the suite. He further took our lunch order. The salmon was perfectly done. Later had dinner outside after spending time in our jacuzzi. We had pork belly and salmon. The pork belly was accompanied by a delicious pumpkin sauce. Did drinks at the bar and later moved to the lounge. The lounge was disinfected prior to us moving there as there were previous guests. Breakfast included cold and hot servings with could being buffet style. The menu is not extensive, however the food preparation and plating is tops. Forgot my fitness tracker and was able to pick it up a day after we had checked out. Amazing service for the entire period we were there. Thank you for making it memorable.

My wife and i experienced this hotel in August. Nothing is spared on attention to detail and decor and furnishings throughout. Our room boasted a separate lounge area as well as a (small) sauna in the basement and a jacuzzi on the patio. They run a beauty salon on the premises where those who want pampering can enjoy anything from pedicures and manicures to massages. The staff are very attentive to clients needs and very friendly. Both dinner as well as breakfast were superb in the well appointed restaurant. There is a cosy lounge in the bar area where one can have a relaxing drink and conversation at the romantic fireplace especially on cold days. This is a fantastic hotel for the discerning traveler or tbe hopelessly romantic couple wanting a five star break with personal attention and pampering. Love it!

I’ve stayed at The Residence on numerous occasions and each time I’ve left having had the most amazing experience. Every room is beautifully decorated and the hotel in general is just stunning everywhere you look. The meals are scrumptious and the staff genuinely lovely and kind. I highly recommend that you stay there as you’ll love every second of it. Thank you so much to the owners who always go out of their way to make myself and my partner feel like royalty. Oh, be sure to also book at their Welgevonden lodge... it is a really magical experience and another of their establishments that bursts with class and beauty everywhere you look.
