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.
