“Comfortable Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2011

Close to main highway.
Large eating area, but be sure you get there well before closing time as they don't restock towards end time.

We had 2 floor VERY large room with sitting area on main floor, with smallish bathroom -toilet, sink, shower, microwave, fridge, TV

There was a conference going on when we got the last room there, of about 20 of their total rooms. So ours was near the front of the coutyard. Quite a big complex. We had a patio with table outside that wasn't too private.

Upstairs was the bed with small TV. Couldn't figure out the aircon. We were only there 1 night so couldn't be bothered to ask, as it was bearable.

They have internet vouchers but we couldn't get signed on so explained that when we checked out and got our rand back without any issue.

Also (stupidly) forget credit card after checked out and they called us immediately!
Thanks so much.
