My husband and I stayed in room #279 for 2 nights in July. Our room faced the swimming pool, shaded under the trees. The room was clean, and spacious with a glass sliding door. The bathroom had a rain shower - no bath to soak in (ugh).
Tip: Watch out for the naughty monkeys who sneaks into the room and steals sugar.
Room complaint: No bottled water!!
The property is beautiful with many old trees, relaxing spaces on the deck areas - viewing across the river towards the Kruger Park. The hotel is situated 2 minutes drive from the Paul Kruger Gate, which is VERY convenient.
Food: Dinner buffet was varied, however I feel there's room for improvement in quality. The setting is beautiful at night with many fires going. The breakfast was good!
The staff in the restaurants were friendly, but reception was not too clued up when asked basic questions about the area.
