Annette Lohr-Happe
"Nice property to stay at, breeze of European atmosphere, stylish great dinner, unimaginably rich breakfast. Very friendly staff. Kind hosts having time for a chat."
Sandra Bateman
"Unfortunately very short overnight stay so didn't have chance to sample the evening meal which other guests told us was excellent"
Julie Croucher, Tribes
"Unfortunately, the owners were out when I called in here.  But the guard let us into the premises!  The setting is nice, tucked down a very quiet road near coffee plantations.  The gardens are lovely and the house has a homely feel about it.  We've had great feedback about the food and hosting and our ground suppliers here say they eat there a lot themselves, which speaks volumes!  A great option for the beginning or end of a safari to relax and unwind in a quiet spot with great food, wine and hosts."
Mrs. Sue Holloway
"Great location; wonderful food"
