Having stayed here over December it was great to return and experience the hotel out of peak season. The staff are really helpful and go out of their way to try and make your stay a memorable experience.
This place has huge potential but being a charitable trust I suspect that capital for investment purposes is an ongoing challenge for Makaranga.
By way of a suggestion the undercover parking should be reserved for guests staying at the hotel as it is frustrating to come back and not be able to park.
We will be returning to this hotel next year!
