Amazing setting


My husband and I stayed at the Mount Sheba hotel over the weekend of 17 July. The road to the hotel is really shocking! The reception was very good and they were very helpful when needed. However the dinner which was part of the deal, was absolutely dreadful! The soup was lovely but the main meal and the pudding were really very disappointing. The breakfast the next morning was good. I am sure it must be lovely to come here in the summer - I just hope they get a new chef!


1. Location: excellent
2. Friendliness: excellent
3. Value for money: very good
4. Cleanliness: very good
5. Overall impression: excellent

From Hester Vermeulen



At Mount Sheba the family and I had an ideal getaway, We thought the fireplace was great, it was definately warm and cosy for the cold winter evenings we experienced.

We enjoyed getting out and experiencing all the wonderful attractions in the area.
