We were looking for a place to stay overnight whilst transferring between cities. Surrounding hotels either came in way to expensive or felt under priced and unsafe. We chose African Rock Hotel for these reasons:
* Free transfers to and from the airport - an easy 20 min drive. Otti picked us up and gave us a warm greeting and welcome to SA.
* Amazingly comfortable accommodation and friendly staff.
* Presentation of the hotel is fantastic - this hotel was previously a house which has been converted into a 5 star hotel. The plus side is it isn't a large hotel, so your needs are catered to without waiting, no queues, just quiet.
* The dining experience was delicious, one of the best steaks we have ever had - highly recommend the fillet. Chefs are very familiar with their cuisine and also wines to match.
Overall a fantastic stay, one that we would gladly do again. Thank you Otti and team for a great visit. Ryan & Tahns.
