I booked on the phone the same evening as I had to attend a wedding. By the time I got there everything was arranged. You are spoiled for choice on the food and the service is great. Try them and see.

This hotel is one of our favourite in South Africa as it has welcoming staff that are eager to assist, the ambience is relaxing and the gardens beautiful. The breakfasts will satisfy anyone and the location gives access to everything from Casino to Game Drives.
