Our company hosted a weekend away for the staff and their families to celebrate year end and combine this with a team build. I was surprised at how lush the Vaal Dam area was and the hotel surrounds are calming with beautifully manicured gardens. The pool area is wonderful and the children absolutely loved this. As part of the team build we had a potjie competition which was also our lunch. The hotel assisted in providing all the ingredients that each team requested. The chef was the judge. I did feel that the hotel had under catered as I was 15 minutes late to join the luncheon and there was no potjies left for me to enjoy. The dinner on the boat trip was thoroughly enjoyable. Food was good. The breakfast buffet was excellent. I stayed in Room 405 which faced the River - the view is lovely but a real pity that there isn't a balcony to really experience the scenary. In terms of sleep quality - The bed was very comfortable but the pillows were not so great. All in all a great getaway in Jo'burg and most of the staff and their families had a wonderful stay.
