General Standard of Facilities: 5 star; Appeal of setting: 5 star; Professionalism and hospitality: 5 star; Value for money: 5 star; Overall rating: 5 star.                                                                                                                                                                              Comments: The Old School House ticks just about every box for a great family getaway (except, of course, if you need to be in constant cell phone contact…)The building dates from 1911 and effort has been put into retaining the character and history of this old school. Yet, we wanted for nothing in terms of comfort – the wood burning stove in the lounge warmed the house on the one cold evening, and the beds even have electric blankets. On another night, we sat outside, marveling at the starry sky. The friendly farm dogs and cat provided much entertainment and Jock even joined us on short walk up the mountain. The nearby river has a well-built jetty with canoes and paddle skis, and this shaded area would be great for a picnic!                                                                   Hanlie and family, Cape Town.
