Thank you for the nice stay service was Amazing!!!
I was a bit unhappy though when we first checked in the room was rather unpleasant to stay in as it was the first room from the reception desk and there was a lot of sounds from the above floor! Luckily they moved us and the room they moved us to was amazing! Loved the balcony the view was to die for!

Lovely little place, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It was freezing but our room had all the amineties for a cosy stay. Food was great, well priced, management and staff were friendly and welcoming. Would recommend!

Great little hotel with attention to small details. Nice breakaway & not far from home. Rooms do require more powerful heaters for the very cold winter nights, but otherwise all good. Food was great too.

The hotel was small and intimate which was lovely. We went on a very cold weekend but the place was always warm with gas heaters and a fireplace. The price of food and drinks was very reasonable. The place is a bit far from everywhere, so we had to travel a bit for expiriences. Otherwise great place.

Service from the staff was amazing.
Value for money gourmet meals served with great care and warmness.
The rooms were very well serviced and equipped for a comfortable stay.
The views from the balcony, overlooking the dam is a sight to see.
Amenities on site is limited to a swimming pool, a little park for short strolls and tables, chairs and sun shades for sundowners and open air cuisine.

The room itself was wonderful, we really enjoyed the balcony overlooking the Vaal dam. Breakfast was top class and dinner was even better. The staff was friendly too, only the pool was too cold, but i would definitely go back and make recommendations
