It was a choice to stay here when booking my adventure trip with Drifters and I am glad I did. The place is in a neighborhood in Northcliff which is I believe a suburb of Johannesburg. It is not near the center of the city so you are here because you are taking a tour. My room was very comfortable... More

We spent 2 nights here before departing on safari with the Drifters company. The staff were amazingly friendly - from the driver who collected us from the airport, Gary the manager and all of the food and beverage staff. The rooms are basic but very comfortable with everything provided. Dinner and breakfasts were delicious and there is a great common... More

Stayed here pre and post safari . We are a family of five ( three teenagers, mum and dad). The sleeping arrangements were good with comfy beds. My concern was the attitude of the staff member upon checkin. Our welcome was abrupt and full of warnings about what we had got ourselves into. Maybe attributed to sense of humor but... More
