It was a excellent experience. The room was well appointed and clean. The environment with gardens are well looked after and made it a pleasant stroll. The dinner was well prepared and very nice, same was the next morning at breakfast. The waiter did a good job and, although not intruding helpful and quick. We will stay there again if we are in the area.
When you do talk to this people they are friendly. But be warned, if you approach the reception area, people will run away. There is absolutely no wifi. No english breakfast (just miniature spicy sausages and an jelly egg, oh and yes ask them to defrost the bacon the night before). It must be the weirdest place I stayed at in my entire adulthood. At least the other guests shared the disappointment and this craziness was a great conversation starter. I would also not recommend this to lady travellers.
The food was small , tastes horrible and the swimming pool was dirty , we didn’t enjoy our stay. The don’t put enough bathing soap and lotion. However I enjoyed the spa treatment with Nadia, it was perfect.
I only had one night stay at Sherwoods but would love to go back for longer. The staff are so incredibly helpful and friendly. Sam and Gerry were always willing to lend a hand. We had a family room which was large and also had a very large bathroom attached. Breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit, berries and honey. I would definitely recommend Sherwoods to all my friends.
Beautiful mountain views! Cozy rooms. Very clean. Good quality linen and beds. Good Wi-Fi signal. Very helpful and friendly housekeeping staff. Nice walk on farm. Clean pool outside. Amazing breakfast!!
Very good maintained and clean rooms , amazing detail to the rooms decor . Outstanding quality of produce at breakfast . Old world charm and very comfy bed . Raw honey comb and lactose free milk . Thank you .
You wanna have a holiday, this is the place, neutral, it’s in the posh, private, surrounded by nature and still close to everything in the area You wanna have a breakaway, camping/chilling/recoup, this is it, it gives the right environment, yet feels consistent to a proper getaway
Liked the atmosphere. Staff and owners very friendly and helpful. Will recommend it to my colleagues and friends. Beautiful view from my room. Breakfast was very nice. Prefer parking closer to my room though.
An excellent Guest house and our one night stay in the luxury room was really super. Joseph who appeared to be the maitre 'd was most helpful as were the other staff members. We would highly recommend Sherwoods to anyone travelling to Agatha and needing a great stay.
Awesome place, friendly service, the owner, Dereck had a few great chats with us, I only have a complaint about the lunch packs we were given, they tasted great but the cost was very high, R 95 per lunch pack for 2 sandwiches, some fruit and a juice I felt was excessive. Our unit did not have an aircon, although we did not spend anytime there during the day, I could not imagine how hot it will be without aircon.
