"Lovely time"

"We had a lovely time. We chose the pool room over the attic room and were pleased with it, and would choose this again as it felt even more private than walking through the hotel, and being able to step straight from the room into the swimming pool was nice. Might like to try the garden suite, if the price was right."
"A wonderful honeymoon option"

"We spent our first night at Highlands House after getting married elsewhere in Cape Town. We were warmly recieved, despite arriving after 1am in the morning, the honeymoon suite was spectacular, the champagne was on ice and very late meal was effortlessly produced (as I had forgotten to eat at the reception).Finding my car shaving-cream and coke can free when we woke up was just the icing on the cake. Fantastic service all round."
