"The room was amazing and the setting and gardens were superb.There was an extensive choice of food at dinner time, all on a serve yourself basis so we could try as many different dishes as we fancied. There was a fire pit outside on the terrace for a last drink before bed. The only disappointment was the background muzak playing at dinner time! Thank goodness we had some African music at breakfast time."
