It's difficult to provide a comprehensive review of this hotel as we arrived late (around 9pm) and left early (around 4am), so all we used was our bathroom and our bed! We had no issues checking in late, with the guard at the gate showing us to our room, and similarly leaving at 4am was seamless (also care of the...

Beautiful location in exclusive residential area and great view of Town. Good quality of room and excellent style of the whole structure. Nice and rich breakfast. Very helpful private parking. Only negative situation as almost all restaurants nearby were closed on Sunday evening.

We have stayed here frequently as in every two weeks over the last 3 months. Property is fine but standard rooms are a bit jaded with hard pillows and linen could do with some professional cleaning to make it sparkling white again. Breakfast is average and that's being kind and on one occasion the team member in charge of breakfast...

I stayed at this hotel while my husband was in the hospital (unexpected part of trip) in Nelspruit. The room was very comfortable and quiet, which was appreciated. Other than breakfast, there is no food service. One evening I went up to the main building to get some ice. At 6pm the door was locked and the guard told me...

Great place, value for money. Clean and comfortable. Owner just needs to chill a little...lol. Too in your face and too helpful-perhaps I just prefer to get peace when I travel. Very sweet lady but I like my privacy.

I stayed here for two nights and it was really comfortable and clean. I was welcomed by the owner and assisted with my luggage. the view from the deck is stunning. Overall it was a pleasant stay, with friendly staff and a delicious decent breakfast. I would definitely come back here again.

Great as a base for visiting the low veld & the Kruger Park. Room was big, neat, practical & clean, but a little dark. Service was accommodating. Lovely deck for Sundowners. Only serves breakfast, but there are plenty places to dine within a short drive.

We stayed here on our way out of Kruger National Park. Unfortunately we arrived as it was getting dark and the street lights were out due to a power cut. It was a little difficult to find the hotel. The only other problem was that there was no dinner served on the premises. We had to leave again on dark,...

My fiance and I slept there Friday night on a rainy day on a business visit, after a long trip from Rustenburg. The room was a delight, clean and tranquil. We woke up to a decent english breakfast before booking out, and the staff, including security and garden staff, were friendly and helpful. Beautiful gardens and views would definitely encourage...

This hotel, which advertises itself as a "boutique" hotel lacks atmosphere, serves distinctly average food, and offers very poor service, especially of the personalised kind which I am used to when staying at other boutique hotels ... this is really a glorified B&B. There were hardly any staff around except in the mornings (those servicing the rooms) and at breakfast....
