    We visited the battlefields in September 2017, the hotel is situated right in the area. Beautiful location on the Buffalo river, right at the drift. Charles, the owner, is very knowledgable on the area and its history.

    We regret that the Hotel does not have wifi but we are able to offer the use of a computer with internet connection for guests' use. We do enjoy a good Vodacom service which can access 3g for mobile comms.

    You will find our standard menus on the Hotel Information listing on the Reservations page. We normally offer a table d'hote menu for supper with the option of a choice from the a la carte for the main course.
