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.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review . We value your comments and use them in bettering our services to all our travellers , both leisure and business. We would like to apologise for having frightened you during your brief moment at our reception . Our staff are well trained with regards to being polite and using the correct etiquette and good manners when approaching and assisting our travellers. We have been operating for more than 20 years , having received much experience with dealing with guests. We apologise for not meeting your satisfaction at breakfast time - we have discussed the "jelly eggs" and "frozen bacon" with our supplier ,breakfast staff and a regular guest present ( that has returned and has been staying with us for many years) . Reassuring prospective travellers that this incidence will definitely not happen- - our first experience. Regarding our wifi - we apologise for the wifi not being 100% active . This seems to be beyond our control and the control of our service provider during peak times of load shedding and bad weather conditions . Being situated on a mountain , we have had many compliments on how well our wifi does work considering our location . We would like to welcome all travellers to visit our beautiful area and enjoy the piece and tranquility we have to offer . Assuring all our travellers our best attention at all times. Regards Sherwood's Team

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a pity that your issues were not noted at Sherwood's and resolved immediately. We take pride in sorting out issues immediately , if any , so that the truth can then be told . Unfortunately we are unable to assist guests with dietary issues if not made aware beforehand , tastes differ from one person to another . Although we do offer a high quality meals. The required ammenities are made available for each room type . We have a reception where guests are welcome to ask for extra soaps etc ... incase they travel without their own or just need extra . Again if not noted beforehand , staff are not able to assist . Glad to hear you enjoyed our salon treatment. Regards Management.

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.

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

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.
