We had an awesome time at Thornleys. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the breakfast is great. But the best feature of Thornleys is their hosts. They are very nice, helpful, flexible and accommodating people. They arranged a bird guide, golf and a braai for us. We really felt we were on a holiday and for this reason we stayed an extra day. We will definitely be back.
