Being a national tourist guide and co-owner at Madikela Tours the history, charm and location of The Halfway House Hotel appealed to us. The rooms are recently refurbish and gives a great impression. Staying two nights make one realize that it needs a few finishing touches though.
The food in the bar downstairs is great, but it seems indirectly smoking is highly promoted. Throughout the day one can see staff members in uniform sitting in the court yard take a smoke break. In the " non smoking" lounge there are no tables available to eat at. For a sit down meal one will have to sit at a table within the smoking area. Having breakfast the first morning I also noticed a gentleman smoking in the kitchen wile preparing coffee. When I asked one of the personnel if I a am seeing correctly she nonchalant replied that he is the owner and the matter was ignored. Needless to say we cancelled breakfast for the next morning.
The noise levels are high and continue late inti the night( Friday).this makes it difficult to get a good nights rest. Having to travel 400-500km the next day makes me think that, even though Halfway House Hotel has got so much appeal, it is not suitable for our clients.
