The words amazing and awesome are very overused so I will say this, from the moment we stepped off the plane until we returned this morning we had the time of our lives! We did not wish our time away in each of the places and enjoyed it all, although as we expected, the safari was truly mind blowing and I had to pinch myself sometimes to believe I was there and witnessing the things we witnessed.
A beautiful country full of great people, always wanting to make your experience special. The fact that many of them probably return to homes which are a million miles from the luxury we experienced never seemed to daunt them or stop the beams on their faces.
The hotel could probably do with a little updating but because of its location, lovely staff and a breakfast second to none, I cannot not rate it less than five star.
Because the overnight flight to Cape Town arrives so early, we wish we'd packed a bag we could quickly have taken out of the suitcase and then used at the spa area, which they did offer to us. We did enjoy looking round the V and A Waterfront but by the time our room was ready at 2.15pm, some six hours later, I was feeling a bit stinky :// - this is not a moan, merely something to maybe suggest to clients with that issue xx
Fabulous hotel in a great position In Franschhoek, owner and team were so helpful and offered lots of suggestions for our stay. Loved it !
Loved every moment of this place, such a different experience than anything we had done before. Slightly wished we'd been given one of the more updated suites, our plunge pool did not look very inviting :/ we did not however moan as we knew we would not be spending huge amounts of time in the suite and the huge bed and delightful bath overlooking the lake were where we spent any time we had in the suite. The main areas were all stunning and the dining experiences were unbelievably special, not only the food but the different areas we had dinners - the last night was on the edge of the owners airstrip with a pizza van, bbq, champagne, lit by hurricane lamps and also the odd hyena hanging around - awesome!
The infinity pool overlooking the hippo lake was also enjoyed.
The staff, including drivers and trackers make for a life experience that will be put in your memory book forever.
If we ever go back, which I'm sure we will we will use you and we will definitely recommend you to any friends or family wanting a trip of a lifetime, thank you xx
