This is where time slows down to give you the relaxation and peace you need for a restful stay. In summer cool off by the pool or enjoy a refreshing drink on the terrace, in the colder winter evenings warm up by the fire in the Dining room or Moxie’s Pub.
Rates include Dinner, Bed and Breakfast and consists of a Full South African Breakfast and a hearty Table d'hote Home Cooked Dinner, try our selection of vintage wines to accompany your meal.

This tranquil setting within the Lower Breede River Conservancy area attracts a vast diversity of bird life. One of which is the Protected Blue Crane (National Bird of South Africa) which can be spotted on the gravel road winding through the farmlands leading to the hotel.
