Worst hotel in Tsogo Sun group. Stay there at your own peril. Unfriendly reception staff. One lady in particular. Daily room cleaning not completed on time. Breakfast area not set up on time ie. 06h30.

It is great that the hotel is undergoing major refurbishment and a lot of unsatisfactory circumstances will addressed. A year from now the hotel will be a perfect destination. Breakfast is excellent..

If more time or a 24 hours service for dinner can be allocated, because we had spent more time traveling into deep rural areas or villages and conducting oral history interviews with local communities, meetings with colleagues from the Provincial government and your local municipalities, hence it required to spent more time away from the hotel and when we came...
