Average hotel, with friendly staff who are always happy to help. The weather during my stay was very cold ( -5 to 16 Degrees). The hotel is really is not set up for handling with such low temperatures, with only a heat function on the aircon unit. The public areas of the hotel were always cold, especially during breakfast in... More

Though my wife, kids and I came in only for resting after driving fro JHB to Mafikeng then en route to Bethlehem. We had a good sleep in a big room with two double beds, had a splendid breakfast and took photos on boats in the river before we drove on.

We enjoyed a weekend break here. The hotel and staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool and gardens are lovely. Our deluxe room was drafty but clean & spacious and well equipped, but our air-con could only blow luke warm air so we were cold at night, also could not properly seal out the noise from the traffic crossing...

This hotel is great for the whole family. The staff are friendly, rooms are clean and they sometimes are able to accomodate you early if the rooms are ready. My kids enjoy it thoroughly as there's a lot for them to do and there is a daytime playroom with a supervisor that keeps the kids entertained and active. Fishing is... More

Make sure you get a river facing room! The hotel is the closest to the rivers edge in the entire area with immaculately manicured gardens & a lovely pool. Breakfast is great as expected from a Tsogo Sun hotel. Exterior kinda average. Rooms are great. Bathrooms old school.. Nothing to complain about really. Reception staff unfortunately are typically lethargic &... More

I spent a week at the hotel on business but i'm definitely going back with my family. The hotel's kept very clean, the food's 5-star, the staff is very friendly. The bathrooms need some minor touch-ups though. I would recommend a river-facing room, and either 5th or 6th floor (if both elevators are working).
