This Hotel really is a place where peace and tranquility can be found, I mostly enjoyed myself in the Lounge area which really was an ideal place to unwind with my book in front of the roaring log fire.

Such a stunning hotel in a beautiful country style, garden / golf setting. We loved it here - we used this hotel as our base from where we explored the surrounding golf courses before heading on to the Garden Route.
