We have been staying at this hotel for a number of years and have observed continually improving levels of service. Staff are more customer focused than ever but that said there is still some way to go. The service in the dining room is slow with the kitchen backing up with orders when the restaurant is full. The food is really good an style wine list is more than adequate.
It is a really great place to stay and if you are looking for a tranquil and relaxed venue for a few days which has easy access to Durban and the upper highway areas - this is it!
