Positive Reviews

Friendly management and staff

Guests are full of praise for the staff members here. The management, for instance, reportedly cannot do enough to assist guests and, in the absence of a tour desk service, they take charge and assist with excursions to major attractions such as Kruger National Park. Both management and staff, guests say, are outstanding.

Clean and modern rooms

The rooms, guests are happy to remark, have a modern appeal and the accompanying bed linen and towels are of good quality. The housekeeping is also found to be of a high standard.

A good place for breakfast and lunch

Guests say that they are particularly impressed by the buffet breakfast choices on offer, and by the a la carte options available in the restaurant at lunchtime.

Negative Reviews

Noise can be generated

Guests say that the nearby road, adjacent generator, and the hotel’s own pool and restaurant all combine to ensure an unwanted source of nuisance noise in the mornings and late at night. For light sleepers, it seems resting can be difficult here.

Bathrooms are behind the times

Guests feel that the en-suite bathrooms do not do the rooms, or the hotel, any favours. They are described as dated, sporting broken tiles and mould to boot. The bathrooms, guests remark, do not encourage them to stay for anything but the shortest shower possible.

Room sizes are small

Guests say that rooms are noticeably much smaller than the hotel’s publicity leads them to believe.They feel that, in this instance, the hotel's publicity is misleading.
