A very large hotel with long walking distances between rooms and reception area and no lifts. Friendly reception staff. Rooms are functional but could be slightly cleaner. Aircon works well. DSTV has the cheap package. Buffet dinner a let down but breakfast highly recommended.

We slept here on our way back from Cape Town to Johannesburg. This hotel is as best suitable for this purpose - sleep-over. The dinner is poor and the bathroom is not of good quality. When taking a shower all the water ended on the bathroom floor outside of the bath.

Friendly and efficient staff, the room was huge, clean with a super view of the hotel pool. We had a selection of cheeses and biscuits on arrival with a lovely personalised welcome card. The hotel bar was very well stocked and the barman extremely friendly. The breakfast buffet had everything a girl could wish for. I will be back.

Overall a nice hotel with a secure green courtyard with a pool. Over all the halls and pool could have been cleaner but this may have been because we stayed Christmas night. Room was clean. Gym was small but has good cardiovascular equipment.

The place is nice and quite. My family enjoyed the stay. The room was well setup and spacious for the family, breakfast was of top quality and the variety of food was excellent. Staff was very friendly, as specially a gentleman by the name of Tebogo. Would recommend it to anyone.
