My husband and I visited this hotel for the weekend from Johannesburg. We took the scenic route through Dullstroom, Lydenburg, Sabie and Hazyview as opposed to the highway to Nelspruit. The hotel and its grounds are truly gorgeous and very well kept. The running track around the property provides for a nice place to take an evening walk.
The resident hippos were a great source of entertainment. The security guard opens the gate for them at night so that they can go and graze along the river. So strange to see them queuing up, waiting for the gate to open! You can also stand fairly close and watch them make their way to the river. It was a short drive to Phabeni gate from where we did a day trip through the Kruger Park.
The only negative experience was the restaurant that did not live up to service or food quality expectations at dinner. Took this up with management and their response was satisfactory. There are however very nice restaurants a short drive away in Hazyview and at the adjacent hotels.
