We arrived late and in pouring rain. Owner sent us the code to get through the gate and keys waiting in the door. We parked right outside the unit. Had a free upgrade to a bigger room. Bedding was very comfortable with en electric blanket for the very cold JHB weather. Breakfast was ample staff very friendly. Will be back
