The room was comfortable, neat, clean and tidy, but the bathroom exceptionally small. Experienced quite a bit of noise coming from the dining room until quite late at night, as staff were preparing for breakfast the next morning?! The receptionist was very friendly and assisting, also very helpful in suggesting dinner options.

We booked via Booking.com and requested specific dietary requirements. On arrival we were made aware that they were not informed of this requirement but will source it to meet the requirements. It was extremely hot and the pool was not clean for use. The aircon in our room was not functioning and they did attempt to give us a better...

The property is very conveniently situated for UFS. The room was comfortable, although there was no soft pillow.Unfortunately, my room faced the garden near the pool and there was a large group of men having a braai there, which made it very noisy.

We were so much impressed with everything. Our room was clean, linen and towels neat and had a room leading into a garden. Location is perfect, just off N8 which makes it easy for anyone to find. This is just a walk to Mimosa Mall, next to Mediclinic and filing station. I would recommend it to anyone.

Front desk gentleman went out of his way to be helpful!! Great guy! He dried beach towels for us plus folded them and brought them to our room. Any questions we had he was more than willing to answer or find out for us!
