"Exceptional High Tea"
We had the pleasure of a High Tea at the Hotel. The food, the service & the location were superb. It was a classic experience in every sense of the word – finger sandwiches, scones, cakes & sweet treats. Service was attentive & professional. It was a great afternoon.Tony W, Hoedspruit, South Africa
