Our stay at Willowbrooke Cottage was sublime. Peaceful, tranquil and cozy and Michelle was a very hospitable host. It was a very relaxing few days. The bed & pillows were super comfortable as well.
Recommend checking on the state of the roads before travelling - we had heavy rainfall and the access was difficult but apart from that, I would highly recommend it.

Superb. 5 out of 5

Scenery is beautiful. Well worth a visit for anyone looking for peace and quiet. Lots of amazing hikes and outdoor activities. Road up to Sani Pass is not recommended. Only 4x4. Meal at the restaurant was very disappointing. But views from the top worth the effort!

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
