Beautifully presented Rooms and gardens, bird life and lake are really special and the gardens a beautiful. Food is wonderful and ambience relaxing. Conference facilities are good and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Room service food availability could do with some improvement but otherwise it is a wonderful place to stay. Luxurious!

Was with a Riviera party of 40 for 1 night. 4 safes were tampered with and 3 of us had ,between us , 6000R stolen. Don't put your money in the safe! Other than the thefts we enjoyed the experience and staff were helpful

Stayed here for just one night after an overnight flight from England. We found this place to be well appointed with large rooms, peaceful grounds and generally helpful staff who gave us a warm welcome on our arrival. We particularly liked walking the grounds and spotting a wide variety of birds. The evening Buffet in The Boma Restaurant was excellent... More

Stayed just one night after flight from UK, so appreciated the peaceful surroundings. Room was clean but a little cramped with insufficient space for suitcases. Terrace very pleasant for lunch, basket meals are huge and one is easily enough for two people unless you are starving. Breakfast buffet was very good, but we were less impressed by the dinner buffet,... More

Although it's far from being a new hotel, the room was cosy. I was for a business week, and wi-fi was one of the most important things. I complained about it several times, even changed the room, but the problem didn't disappear. I found myself multiple times outside a room close to the restaurant where I figured that I could...

At this hotel, the name of the game is plush! The rooms are very cosy and nicely decorated and they take great care in making them comfortable and clean for guests.
