Hidden away in Nature Reserve this amazing hotel offers a place to relax in the bush. Great, big rooms with the stunning view and the free mini bar. The reception staff very friendly and helpful. The selection of food for breakfast was outstanding, up to international standards. Many Thanks!

Everything about this hotel was above and beyond what I expected. The room was incredible with the bathroom absolutely huge. The food from the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast that was included was delicious as well. All the staff were very helpful. Overall I could not have asked for anything more from this hotel
