Hi Derrick and Pixie (Boet en Sis)
Just a short thanks for everything that you did for me while I was at “home from home.” I really do appreciate that I was made so welcome by yourselves and your staff. You are a true testament of what the hospitality industry should be about.
A special thanks to Rynette for handling all of my bookings etc so efficiently and to Sam and his staff for always being patient even though they had to rise earlier to give me breakfast on cold winter days without ever complaining.
I hope to see you in the new year.
May you have a healthy, blessed and prosperous new year.
regards Fred, Frances and family.
p.s. give Lady a big T-bone medium to well done for Christmas.
