    We loved our room upstairs. Very large and wonderful. The shower is great and the whirlpool tub is fab! The garden and pool are picture perfect. The dogs are an added homey bonus. The hosts. Could not be more gracious. The staff are all very sweet and serve an excellent hot breakfast. We had four relaxing nights here while in Pretoria.
