"Wow! did I just get the best feedback from my parents!!! They were at a loss for words. They said the food was out of this world, the service was exemplary, their room was described as something out of a fairytale etc etc etc. You have now got a long list of new guests. I cannot thank you and the staff more for making it as romantic and memorable as I ever could have hoped for. Their stay there is something they will remember forever…I think the only negative remark about the stay was that it was too darn SHORT! J The blame is solely mine! Please express my deepest gratitude unto Jon and Wade as well!!! Thanks again…we will be visiting soon"

"Stay at Calderwood was fantastic. Food, accommodation, etc was great, and the service beyond compare. The only limitation was proximity to Midlands Meander et al (some 50km away from such points of interest) so not the ideal place if the meander is of great importance for the stay. Otherwise, well worth a stay. The service and follow-up by "SAFARINOW" certainly a factor in having chosen this location, and will no doubt be used for futures forays into the midlands, etc."
