enjoyed stay but jsut concern with people smoking weed and smell coming into our room had to close window which wasnt pleasant .... but loved the sheet bedding bed slept nice . pitty for weather . Grass didnt seem to be well kept as had vision of ....... the place has changed over the period of first visiting , more rooms and building errected but over all did enjoy the night besides that so maybe by braai section have a lappa so people can smoke weed so doesnt come inside . the emptiness of doors banging was something to be heard maybe rubbers put on the inside so not so intense with hollow of passages etc but affordable enjoyed and thank you
