Comments on Establishment:

I was met at the gate by a real gentleman and escorted to my parking and there after to my room ( The Tugela). The facilities were excellent and the service was beyond the extra mile. At breakfast the food was excellent and my stay was well rounded off by Kevin assisting right up to my exiting the gate. The garden was also really great and full of colourr with a large variety of birds in attendance.

Despite the fact that there was a power failure, Kevin went out of his way to make my stay as comfortable as possible. It is easy to find Silver Birch and I felt safe. Thank you for a scrumptious breakfast!
