  • We should have sat in the quiet side, but it was not too distracting. The friendly folk who work here really were attentive, without being a nuisance! The food was also of a good standard.  more »

  • Beautiful beautiful spot. We stopped for breakfast and I was delighted the they had a vegan option on the menu and soy milk for me to enjoy a very well brewed cup of coffee. The food was truly delicious and could be appreciated with a stunning view of the emasculated gardens.
  • Lovely place albeit busy on a Sunday. Excellent service from staff. Gardens are in good nick and well worth a visit to the waterfall even in the rain. Popular restaurant on the property ...food is above average.
  • Beautiful place, had a really good supper and my room was top notch. Did not see much as I arrived there late evening and left very early the next morning. I'm definitely making a plan to go there again
  • Very tranquil. Rest urant serves great food but be prepared to pay. When ordering a slice of cake for R60 were told they cater for the international tourist. Have a rock pull which is well maintained. Various pathways through gardens.
  • Great place to spend the day at with a well kept park and restaurant. Prices at the restaurant are pricey and food is above average in terms of special ingredients and options available. Worth a visit if you in the area but a reservation is required as it does get a bit busy. Great views over the park with ample parking spots behind closed gates. Ordered a nonna chicken pizza and a vegetarian one as well. Their choc mint hot chocolate is great as well as their specialist milkshakes of which I had the coffee flavoured.
