Great looking place with its out of the way feel. Liked the layout of the blocks and the various hotel facility buildings dotted about. Nice garden feel and water feature plus ornaments give it style. Wide open space with Ostriches and Springboks about add to the ambience. Clearly a place that works for events like weddings and conferences too.

Room good size with king size bed and space featured fridge and microwave. Bathroom clean and just big enough for what you need. Useful key safe. Walls somewhat thin so you can hear a lot of noise from other rooms plus people walking along balcony and shutting the noisy metal door to the rooms. But I got my sleep as most people retired early enough. Wifi was a bit poor as the voucher code was limited to data used. Mine ran out pretty quickly and I didn't do any streaming. You could ask for more codes but most hotels give you unlimited access for your stay so this seemed a bit backward here.

Main restaurant has a cafe feel and is clean and tidy but quite average in overall look. No proper bar unfortunately just a counter to order your drinks and food from. Dinner was filling and tasty - buffet style. Breakfast had cooked selections plus usual cereals etc. There is a separate bar building but was closed. Maybe open only when it is busy or height of season.

Staff helpful and friendly.

Stayed at the hotel as part of a Riviera tour. The room was comfortable. The food was buffet style for main meal and breakfast. Staff were friendly enough. There were animals grazing nearby. It was in the middle of nowhere.

My wife and I stopped here for two nights as part of a tour of South Africa with Riviera. We had a large room with a kitchen area. The room was clean and had the usual amenities. They were a bit skimpy on the the coffee and milk but you could ask reception to restock for you. There wasn't a hair dryer in the room but you could get one from reception for a refundable deposit of 100 rand. The food and drink was very cheap. The best thing about the hotel has to be the outside which is well maintained and has ostrich, impala and zebra grazing in the field. A very nice location.

Hi

Thank you for your comments.

Yes some of our rooms only have a bath. We could assist, if you wanted a room with a shower, unless if we were fully booked.

Reception should have made mention to you re the Bath before upgrading.
