    Neat, Clean and the Food

    Had an excellent stay. The room is large, neat and clean. Situated on top of a small mountain overlooking Grahamstown. You need to travel a few KM's on a dirt road, but the road is in good shape. The breakfasts were very tasty and filling. It is peaceful and quite up here. The only negatives were that there is not much 3G reception up on the mountain and the WIFI at the manor does not work very well. The bed was also two single beds.

    Lack of attentiveness ”

    Size, bathroom and views

    Disastrous...at the time of checking in or checking out, no one was in attendance at the hotel. As a result we were very late and actually missed the church ceremony of a wedding we attended in Grahamstown on Saturday afternoon, which started at 15:00. It was utterly disappointing. On the day of checking in, we had to wait for approximately 35 minutes for a staff member to open the gates of the hotel and check us in. Checking in at the hotel only commences at 14:00 and we could not obtain an early check in from out agent. I was bitterly frustrated. On the day of checking out, the staff member just disappeared without informing us that he was leaving. Breakfast is only catered until 9am, even on a Sunday...no sense of relaxation not that you should expect much. Not going back to hotel nor would I recommend it ... not at that price.

    For last resort ”

    The mountain view had unfortunately burned down and the accommodation that is offered is on self catering basis. On a very chilli and Makhanda day. We had no electric blankets no heaters etc. The staff member who attended to us seems untrained as he came to our place in the mo to tell us we had Tobe out as they were expecting other guest. This was still in the morning and we were prepared to leave so this "chasing away" stant that he pulled was uncalled for. In my decades of traveling I ever saw anything like that.

    Hospitality was not good . Television in the room was not working for a very long time since I checked in and it was later fixed while I was in the room listened to the radio over my phone. Dust bin waste in the bathroom for the previous guest was not cleaned. Base covers of the beds were filthy dirty. No iron provided in the room and I called the owner for assistance and there was no reply I even sent her a sms and no reply either. Floor was also not clean I had to sweep before I go to sleep.
