    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.

    It was a good stay as always. Negatives - The hot water was off on arrival and the TV in my room was not functioning. These issues should have been fixed before my arrival. Positives - Excellent location, neat and spacious rooms, good food.

    The rooms. The view. We had our own keys for the gate and the main entrance.

    Excellent. I hope they improve on the road leading from the N2 to the BnB. Otherwise we highly recommend it.
