The fabrics throughout include superlative silks and textures handpicked to match each interior.

In addition to the deluxe dcor, breakfast is served in the beautifully renovated stables. The breakfast spread consists of full continental and full English. Pre-booked dinners can also be arranged.

  • "Disappointing"

    09 January 2015

    "Nice large room. Looked forward to having a bath in the modern bath, but the plug didnt work. The toilet's cistern was broken, so each flush was manual. Flies...a lot of them. Suggestion, if you are going to have a guest house close to cattle and other livestock, invest in a whole bunch of red top fly traps. No hot water in the morning. It seems as if a lot of money was spent on decor and bedding etc. , but not a lot of experience in actually running a guest house. ESTABLISHMENT RESPONSE: Thank you Theo for the feedback. We had a plumber in the next morning and he could find no fault with the toilet and it functioned 100%. About the hot water we did explain to you that we had trouble with Eskom so without electricity no hot water unfortunately. Our apologies for the inconvenience. We also suggest to keep doors closed at all times because this is a working farm there will be flies. Guesthouse is treated with fly repellent regularly and rooms are provided with insect spray. Once again our apologies, but it was unforeseen circumstances out of our control."

  • "Overnight Stay"

    07 January 2014

    "Our one night stay was refreshing to say the least. The arrival was friendly and the room excellent so was the breakfast. Would recommend a stay over for anyone travelling inland or to the coast, as this is an oasis in the proverbial desert."

  • "Very comfortable bed in beautiful surroundings"

    09 January 2012

    "We had a lovely stopover on the way to the wild coast in December. Our room overlooked the lake which was very tranquil and relaxing. Only downside of the stay was that our room was absolutely full of flies but this could be rectified easily."
