My husband and I had been planning a trip to Sierra Farm before Covid-19 changed everything. We finally managed to spend a weekend there recently and had a lovely relaxing stay. The room was clean and cosy and the king sized bed very comfortable with more than enough blankets etc. The food was served on time and was very tasty, and there was more than enough to satisfy my husband’s appetite!
I must say, however, that it appears that it is the staff and not the management who are the “soul of Sierra”. From our reservation that handled by the lovely Kwanele (who also showed us to our room and made sure we were happy with the room we had been allocated) to the inimitable Moses (who has been at Sierra for over 40 years), and not forgetting the friendly, helpful staff in the dining room and bar, everyone was so friendly and hospitable. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the managers, who did not introduce themselves despite the resort being very quiet.
It is obvious that the economic climate has had an effect on the resort but it seems that an opportunity is being lost, because this is exactly the type of affordable, family friendly accommodation South Africans are looking for. Some TLC is desperately needed to bring this lovely place back to its former glory.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely!!More
