I was worried about the power issues in South Africa and I thought I might be impacted at this location but the guest house had power all night.

6/10 Good

Our stay was okay. Very quite place - there were no other quests - too quite. But the advantage is that it is very close to Golden Horse Casino. When we reached the Guest House we hooted because we didn't know that there was an intercom. There was a man outside who was very rude to us because we hooted. When we finally got in the reception we received was very dull. A brighter reception area with a bubblier receptionist will be good. Breakfast - could be better. On the whole, our one night stay was okay.
