Just a word of warning. We were looking forward to staying in a luxury suite for 2 nights after a week in Cape town before flying off to Sun City. Take a look at their web site at the Suites and you will see they are fantastic.
We got our confirmation from Travelbag, 2 nights in a Garden Suite. Upon arrival we were taken to the dingiest room I have ever been presented with. Dark, damp and I wouldn't have put my dog in there. I instantly asked to see the manager and showed him my voucher for a Garden Suite. "Aaah" he said, "this happens a lot. This is a Garden Lodge that we have re-named a Garden Suite, those Suites over their you think you have booked are actually Villa Suites"
To cut a long story short and after going around in circles we had to pay an extra R1,000 for 1 night in the suite we had booked and then move to a standard room the next day as they were full with a conference.
Just check if you want a suite then make sure they are "Villa Suites" or you too may be hugely dissapointed.
Apart from that, very nice hotel, good shuttle service, Book Reubens Restaurant in advance it was excellent. The hotel will arrange a private wine tour (3 hours is long enough) as the Vineyards are all adjacent and gets a bit samey.
2 nights here is adequate in my opinion.
