Skål International is a professional organisation of tourism leaders around the world, promoting global tourism and friendship. This month the Skål Garden Route club elected to have their monthly networking lunch at Portland Manor and we were delighted to host them. The event kicked off with a tour of the hotel and Manor House where they were entertained by singer Petronel Baard, accompanied by the grand piano, in the formal dining room. Lunch was served in the Cowshed Eatery.

The place is absolutely exquisite. Pictures do not do justice: everything is just beautiful and cosy from the rooms, to the restaurant to the pub and the gardens. Staff was also amazing and always available. It really impressed us and we will be back.
