We stayed for a Week, Monday to Saturday. This is truly an up market establishment. The breakfast is exceptional and lovingly presented by Dale, your hosts helpful and unobtrusive. The Facilities around the swimming pool, proximity to the river, the on-suite (with a great deep and relaxing bath) and the balcony with its build in hot rocks gas braai are all top rate.

The lounge (breakfast) area is not really available to guests to use, so you may feel a little room bound if you are not out and about on a longish stay.

Room Tip: The family room does not have a river view.

Our hosts thought of every conceivable way to make our stay perfect. The breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious, the location is very peaceful and scenic, with many activities nearby and stunning beaches on the doorstep. A very difficult place to leave.
