I went to Stefan’s and it was an amazing experience! The staff (Lupho and Andile) was so friendly and even Chef Stefan came to speak to each table. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family for a memorable tasting journey.

An amazing venue to host workshops and conferences. The service was exceptional and left nothing to be desired.
We had a few evenings at the restaurant - a place of tranquility and luxury. I feel flattered when walking in here and all the staff made me feel welcome.

If you'd like to treat yourself and your team/ other half, this is the place to go for an unforgettable experience.

Beautiful First Class Hotel with excellent rooms Facilities and service. Situated in a stunning region. The whole experience was amazing. We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our Honeymoon in one of the luxury suits and it was amazing. I also visited the spa while there and had a fantastic massage. All meals were exceptional and after our dinner one of the evenings we came back to a surprise bottle of champagne and desert in our room. Would absolutely love to stay here in the future.

Booked for dinner on Sunday, the 1st of April in the Oaks Terrace, but due to the weather we were given a table in the Magnolia restaurant.

The service was absolutely appalling to the point where we had to get up from the table to find somebody to order drinks, even the wine we ordered, we had to serve ourselves, not that we’re not happy to do that, but you would’ve expected, at least one member of staff to offered, but no attention whatsoever.

Having eaten in the hotel on many occasions, this was a huge letdown as we took friends who would never been before.

The staff were more interested in setting up for breakfast for the following morning and completely abandoned us.

Food was very average and we questioned whether it was cooked by a professional chef.

Awful experience, I wouldn’t go near it.

Room tip: Don’t bother.
