Recently spent one evening at the hotel with family on route to KNP. The overall appearance of hotel is good, but is certainly more geared to the business traveler. Found the hotel slightly pricy for what it offered.
The family rooms are very spacious and can certainly not fault. Staff are also very friendly and helpful.
Only complaint is the busy highway which runs next to the hotel with constant traffic noise, especially during the night.
Dinner at the restaurant was terrible, only way to describe it. It was a Sunday night and I can only assume the manager and cheff were off duty because the reviews I have read about the restraunt were good.
Hotel does have a nice shopping centre adjacent to it. Overall was not bad, but would think twice about returning, particularly at the rates they charge.

Colours are reminiscent of romantic hillside villages in Provence and Tuscany. It’s contemporary style is enhanced by richly textured baskets, sleek furnishings and designer fabrics featuring proteas and ‘bokkies’ which give the hotel an original handprint and convey its South African roots. Accessories such as wire-work baskets, hand-crafted tiles and decorative light fittings were all made by local artisans. ... more less
