All rooms are air-conditioned with television, clock radio, hair dryer, direct dial telephone & coffee/tea making facilities. Bathrooms are en-suite and contain towelling & toiletry amenities. Luxury rooms mostly have separate bath & shower, while standard rooms consists of shower over bath.
Lunch is an outside affair, seeing that our winter middays are the best time of the year to drench yourself in sunshine, and in the summer a vine covers the pergola adding to the country atmosphere. Light lunches and a small selection of traditional dishes are available of which oxtail in the winter of course is as total winner and our Pear and Blue Cheese Salad in the summer.
Dinner is a somewhat more formal affair. Kosie Hanekom, our pianist, has produced two CD's already, and lots of guests still enjoy his beautiful playing in their cars or at home. Candles set the scene; the waitress is friendly and helpful and opens your serviette for you. Is this the 21st century? NO, we are back in the days when serving was still an art.
Our menu focus mainly on dishes we grew up with in South Africa. The lamb we bring from the Great Karoo to prepare top quality Lamb Pie and Lamb Shanks are slowly braised in tomato, onion and red wine. Our Bobotie, a Cape Malay speciality, is prepared to an original recipe and served with dried fruits from our area. The wine list is representative of the best wines from the Robertson Wine Valley and will satisfy even the most selective palate.
