As other reviews we found the rooms very small. We were travelling with our 2 small daughters and the staff insisted that there were no adjoining rooms, so we had to split up with my husband in one room with one daughter and I in the other with our 2nd daughter. They also put us in different corridors - no explanation as to why, and staff fairly uninterested in helping.
This hotel has several pictures up of their heyday, and I'm not sure they have moved on.
It was surface clean, but when I moved the bathmat off the bath onto the floor, there was mould on the underside. Yuk.
Outshoorn is lacking in a good alternative from what we saw, but it wouldn't take much to outdo this hotel.
Breakfast was OK. Some good local selections which we hadn't seen at other hotels. Breakfast staff were good and very helpful.
This hotel is an OK selection, but reception staff and bathrooms need work.
The Outshoorn location was a neccesity for us with the caves and the Cango wildlife park - both a must do if you are in the area.
