Slept for one night en route to Cape Town. Good family interleading room. Infortunatelly no cover for the children's duvet. Otherwise would have given it 5stars... Friendly staff, safe parking. Close to highway and petrol station. Would visit again

Stayed @ this hotel during the weekend, and was a bit disappointed by the lack of some basic maintenance, which I did not see on previous visits. It is still a convenient, value for money stopover, with friendly & helpful staff.

This was our stopover on the way to Cape Town and back to KZN! The front desk understands tired guests, as this must be the main reason for guests making use of this hotel - its location is perfect as a 'half-way' stopover in a trusted hotel group hotel - you know what to expect! . The check-in / out...

Checked in last night and was pleasantly surprised at the room as I entered. Then I made the mistake of trying to turn on a TV that could now be sold as an antique. The control with it did not work and TV had to be turned on by the wall. The bathroom was as clean as a mud bath....

Our warm and comfortable room was perfect on the very chilly winter nights. The staff was friendly and very helpful to our needs, never hesitating to put us at ease. I personally had THE BEST massage at the spa and my fiance enjoyed his too, and being really decent with pricing didn't hurt. Sadly the breakfast wasn't what we expected,...

The room was big and spacious but became rather cramped once the sleeper couch was opened to accommodate our little child. For the amount we paid I would have expected breakfast to be served. However, for one night sleeping in 'luxury' was worth the money spent. Def a good choice for the discerning travelled. Bonus for us was the presence...

All in all a pleasant and convenient stop over on route to and from Cape Town. Situated just off the highway. Very friendly staff at reception. Only down side is that the doors open and close very loud. Also people coming back from the casino late at night speaking loudly can be disrupting.
