True style

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 10, 2006

The hotel with it's tudor style looks like old European luxury and that's just how it flows when you stay here. It's not 5 star glitz and highrise, it's old warm 5 star charm and attention to detail. Also the little quirks make me smile. The passageways are all golf putting greens and at the end of each corridor is a golf putter and ball you can play with. If you look down into the glorious courtyard you may see a plastic snake sunning itself on some netting. The food is glorious. We were served a chef's welcome appetiser, a tidbit of steak tartare on toast that was bursting with sharp flavours, the Kingklip (fish) carpacio, lightly grilled and served on shredded potato cooked like rissotto, pork neck, beef fillet, linefish, spring chicken all served with true flair and flavour of food prepared by a chef, rather than just kitchen staff.

The South African breakfast, 2 eggs cooked perfectly, pork sausage (nice pork sausage, not the dodgy stuff you sometimes get) rashers of bacon, mushrooms and tomato, delish and all the nicer when you've only paid R600/night which incudes your two course alacarte dinner and the breakfast.

On arrival a free bottle of red wine and fruit platter, bitong and nuts waiting in the room. Free bottle of water every day, thick 'n juicy bathrobes, chocolate on the pillow at night, little sticker on the toilet roll, personalised bathing products... all the cute little pleasantries that make you feel special in a hotel.

The special ends end of September 2006 when Springtime comes.

Roomy rooms (they have little entrance halls) and lovely bathrooms, TV, dataport, wireless throughout the hotel, minibar, compliementary tea coffee and lime juice in room, Cable TV, aircon, phone, roomsafe, shower and bath, swimming pool, full spa/massage salon on premises.

Unique Quality: Great food, attentive staff, lovely place
