This family three-star hotel is to be found at the top of the Magoebaskloof Pass on the R71 between Polokwane and Tzaneen. It is flanked by Afromontane Forest, is close to Afromontane grassland habitats, and overlooks the sub-tropical Lowveld at the bottom of the valley, and is therefore particularly well situated as a mountain birding base. The hotel is a member of the Heritage Environmental Rating Programme and the management is totally committed to conserving the rare and beautiful natural environment in which it is situated. There are marked paths on and adjacent to the property. Over 130 bird species have been recorded in this area, and of special interest are the African Crowned Eagle, Long-crested Eagle, Cape Parrot, Narina Trogon, Olive Bush-Shrike, Grey Cuckooshrike, Square-tailed Drongo, Chorister Robin-Chat, Knysna Turaco and Buff-spotted Flufftail. The flowering shrubs in the hotel gardens attract a variety of Sunbirds including Southern and Greater Double-Collared, Amethyst and Collared.
