    A very nice, available and very caring staff. Feels like home atmosphere. Nice view on the pool and on the nearby lake. Just the bathroom may need a refurbishing.

    Good

    05 Sep 2018
    Our stay there was out of convenience after arriving in Joburg after a long trip since it's close to the airport. The place itself looks like it has a lot of potential that is not really used. Our room was okay but it could use a thorough renovation and also the bathroom wasn't very clean. At first we were told that our room didnt have a key but luckily she did find it in the end... The common area was fine , although the outside part looks a bit neglected. It was fine for a night though.
