We stayed here for two nights before heading out on an organized tour to Kruger, Swaziland, Cape Town etc. We were very impressed with our large, clean, modern room, as well as the front counter staff and the restaurant. By North American standards the hotels wine and food prices are very good, as is the food and service. If you are booking in advance, be sure to ask for a room that overlooks the Wanderer's Club, otherwise you will be facing the street and trees....not so nice. We experienced both room types as we had to shift rooms after one night (our booking problem, not theirs...although they tried very hard to keep us in the same room). The hotel arranged to pick us up at the airport after our late night flight arrival, and they were always available to arrange rides to where ever you wanted to go. My only complaint is about the internet Wi Fi rates.....they are extortionate. I cannot imagine how they can charge so much. I could enjoy a fine meal in their restaurant cheaper than using my iPad for an hour or two :-)). If you stay here be sure to take a walk around the property and to check out the adjacent Wanderer's Club, and their restaurants.
