    Nice hotel but the high tea is a disaster for what you pay for. It's noisy and you'll compete with a crowd of under 10s at the buffet table. If you're looking for a quiet peaceful place, this isn't it

    Lovely hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast, nice rooms with a good view and working wifi. But very child friendly, so noisy for those who'd like some peace and quiet...

    One of the best colonial hotels in South Africa, a secret for those in the know. The esthetic taste of the original owners was sublime. The original Mate re D in the Grill room 30yrs is golden

    The chicken curry - with mauritian masala - is the winner. The decor is outstanding, colonial nautical plantation feeling. incredibly polished service. Charming decor.
