Poor hotel at a great location. This hotel is outdated and it can get away with it by its great location near the Drakenberg national park. The staff, especially the restaurant staff is unfriendly and they show how they hate their job and their guests. The food is of a microwave quality, and the proof in that is not just the taste, but also the fact that you get the food 1 minute after ordering. Really not what I experienced elsewhere in South Africa, where you find friendly staff and an excellent quality of food. I do not recommend this hotel, even not for its location as there is more choice in the neighborhood.
