We were only staying for 1 night as a stopover en route to Victoria Falls so wanted something near the airport. From the start the staff were really helpful, allowing us to check in rididulously early and going out of their way to make us welcome. It was unusally cold so trying to keep warm was a bit of a challenge but there is a great log fire in the dining room so we spent lots of time huddled around that. The room was comfortable - ours looked out over the perimeter wall but we still had a terrace with tables & chairs.
When we were there it was extremely quiet so never really saw anyone else. The restaurant was closed for dinner so rather than go out we ordered in pizza from a menu provided by reception - it arrived nearly an hour later and was stone cold (not the hotel's fault) so definitely wouldn't recommend this option. The reception staff let us warm it up in their microvawe so had a warm but very soggy dinner! Had lunch in the hotel restaurant and unfortunately we were extremely disappointed - the only bad meal we've ever had in over 20 visits to South Africa. Maybe it was the chef's day off as breakfast the next day was very good. The staff were all really excellent and should we need a quick stopover again near the airport then this is a good choice.
