I will certainly return if...

Great hotel for a stop-over en-route to Joburg from Kruger. The exterior is unchanged from my stays there as a child, however the rooms have been updated inside. Spotless, contemporary bathrooms and the best bed ever! Beautiful gardens and pool as well!

Found a piece of paradise off the N4. Comfortable room with a private balcony. Lots for children to do and farm animals to play with i.e. ducks, rabbits and chickens. Friendly and accommodating staff. Limited menu, but Melissa the chef cooks the food to perfection. Our 32nd anniversay was really enjoyed in this tranquil, green and beautiful setting. Big thanks...

We booked 2 rooms. One family room and one twin to accommodate our family of 5. The rooms although not the most modern, are comfortable and large. Some of the rooms have been upgraded with new air conditioners. The hotel entrance is close to the N4 but the rooms and gardens are well set back offering a quiet tranquil environment...
