8/10 Very good

It was amazing, although we had to move to another branch, since the desired one was fully booked... please make sure you confirm with the hotel before accepting a booking..

2/10 Poor

Bad Choice
Booked and paid online.(it was only 2 hours begore booking in) At arriving at the hotel was told that they have no record of my booking or payment and that they were fully booked. Called for a manager who advised that they could assist with accommodation. After a 2 hour wait was then told we have to another R500 for 2 rooms. Accomodation was very poor with rooms clean but very little working in the room. Paid R1500 for a suite that had no bedside light, TV did not work, one small hand towel only, shower bad tiling and quite dangerous, noisy party upstairs. Very Bad experience

4/10 Fair

The stay was average, the receptionist was not there upon arrival. He did not know of the benefits associated with the purchase( breakfast was included in the site). The beds were 2 singles beds pushed together which is fine expect the beds were not the same and it was uncomfortable to lay in the middle.

2/10 Poor

We booked a 4slepper paid but got allocated with a 2sleeper room. The room we were given for starters it was small terrible view facing tools that are dumped of and Jojo tanks, also had no bar fridge as promise.. Sqiniseko who was our receptionist couldn't do much because hotel was fully booked on that day. But nevertheless the restaurant was exceptional good, enjoyed the pool and staff were very simplistic..but i our expectations were not met had to share a bed with my daughter, husband and i. Overall did not get what we paid for
