    Eating out off season is a good drive away especially on a Sunday as no restaurants were open. However, the owner did offer to provide platters for the room 😀

    This is a very smart gem, you'd call a hotel in the UK, only 30k from Addo. The staff and owner couldn't do enough for you, very welcoming and chatty. Great value, highly recommended!

    Extremely helpful staff made us feel comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed the contemporary room we had in the new complex, relaxing by the swimming pool, a Sunday night ‘dinner plate ‘ which was delivered to our room and the good breakfasts. A pleasant drive from Addo. Thank you.

    Not expected but maybe pop a 'signature' rusk or something like that into the rooms with the coffee / tea - enhancing the brand.

    Spacious rooms, excellent dinner and breakfast options, lovely architecture in the main building, very friendly staff.

    Dark brown colors in the room. Restaurant terrace located next to the road. At breakfast everything was not available anymore, but we have to admit that we were a bit late... ;-)

    Spacious room with parking close to the room on the premises of the property. Nice bathroom with both a bath and a spacious shower. Nice terrace to have dinner outside. Air-conditioned room. Nice typical South-African building.

    This hotel was staffed by well-meaning but untrained people. The tea and coffee making supplies in the bedroom were not replenished on a daily basis. The soap dispenser was empty when we arrived - no one had checked it. We were given a pot of tea at breakfast which had a large crack in it, so it flooded the table. When we pointed this out to the waiter, he remarked that it would have to be thrown away, BUT HE WALKED AWAY AND LEFT IT ON THE TABLE !!!!!!

    The bedroom was spacious.
