    Staff is very friendly and attentive. Braai nights around bonfire is a great treat. Overall stay was pleasant. Rooms however can get incredibly hot in summer. Views are amazing from the room and dining area.

    Dear Vanessa Thank you for taking the time to add your comments to TripAdvisor. The braai is always a winner, that is if the storms don't interfere which also happens in Summer. Best regards Lindy
