Like an earlier reviewer Rocky R, I stayed in room 130. I won't really add much to the earlier reviews except to say two things - firstly the electrical wiring in the room looked positively dangerous; two appliances wired Heath Robinson style into a single wall plug is not what I expect from a Protea managed hotel. Secondly the block's aircon units are arranged along the ground directly outside the ground floor room windows. This makes for a noisy night if you are in a ground floor room.
The bathroom was tired, the room had that tropical "musty" smell and there is no WiFi in the rooms distant from the reception. On a positive note the boma braai (bbq) was really good.
I think that the hotel survives on its good location for the game parks and its large number of rooms being able to handle coach tours and conferences.
