Good 6,0
Five stars - except the reservations department!
Wonderful property spoilt by reservation which went embarrassingly wrong. Group arrived with all wrong names, could not check in as a result and reservationist just blames In fact, stated that she does not understand what I am unhappy about! Very poorly handled - not what you expect of this type of establishment.

Simola stopover
Excellent all round, a large lovely one bedroom apartment with everything you could possibly need other than a washing machine - but for this they offer a laundry pick up service . The restaurant food was very good , and we tried several different dishes all excellent and large helping i suggest you miss out on starters unless you have a Huge appetite! The breakfast which was included was a full selection of cold and hot foods delicious .
Pamela, za2 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Beautiful setting a place that was 5* now more 4*
Views are spectacular. Rooms/Suite was well appointed. If the room was prepared for guests it would we top notch, but looked like it had been cleaned a couple of days before we used the room. The garden certainly needs maintenance. long grass and weeds in the beds. Patio hadn't been swept in a while and was covered in dead insects. There TV's need updating. I would not suggest this place for a family with kids for any period of time.
