We stayed here on our first night in South Africa to then be picked up and start our safari the next day. The place was odd in that there was very little information provided about when meals are served or accommodations around the place. The room was huge but absolutely frigid...overnight there was a frost and it was as cold in the room as outside. There was no heater in the room and I was shivering most of the night. The food was also pretty bad. The place seemed to be in a semi-state of disrepair...the outside security gate was broken and pieces of electrical connections lying on the ground. The room was large and the bath was also spacious, but I felt oddly out of place the entire stay. I was very grateful to leave the next morning. It was conveniently located outside of Johannesburg, but it was not what I was looking for. I was hoping for a practical, safe, but comfortable place to stay. This had the first two qualities.
