Too Bad not good for First Timer to SA
The people working in the hotel once they notice you are a first traveler they will cancel your hotel booking which you have paid for and they will start asking for money and not putting you in the normal room you paid for this is so so sad please people should be very careful of this hotel my guest have to leave because they told him is booking has been cancel by him which the booking is still valid.

Disappointed guest
The place is in a quite place but there owner/ workers had no respect for people still sleeping...they started chatting and laughing loud outside. For a place advertised on the internet, one expects professionalism irrespective of the price. The parking is also a problem, whilst sleeping they wake you up to make way for another honesty ill never go back.

4/10 Fair

It was our 3rd time sleeping there and twice booking the "honeymoon" suite. It was worse than when we first visited.Check in was 12:30 but at 13:30 when we got there the room was still being prepared so we had to wait for the lady who was also a receptionist to take towels from the washing line to put in our room. There was no bathroom mat and I had to call my partner everytime I wanted to get out of the bathtub because I was scared of falling.No bowls, cups or spoons in the room. We had a long night and on the Sunday morning we got woken up by so much loud noise from the staff talking at around 6 am. I won't come back again I am sorry, there was nothing honeymoon about it and the room showed no maintainance at all. It was a waste of 600, never again.
