My mum rang up Algoa from the UK at my request to book us in last minute because I had become unwell at Addo National Park and wanted to be closer to a big town with a hospital in case my illness worsened. It was our 4 year anniversary and Lisa and Roger tried very hard to help us find something we could do whilst I was so ill to try and save it from disaster. I couldn't go out in the end, but Roger brought me medicines and filtered water and showed a lot of concern. He gave me their mobile number so I could call in emergencies. I had to text at 1:30am to ask him to tell us where the local hospital was when he woke up in the morning, and Lisa brought us directions to the hospital at 6am, way before they opened for breakfast. They were very kind indeed. The hotel was gorgeous- a beautiful pool and the room was absolutely gorgeous. I wish we could have stayed under different circumstances. I've put 5/5 for sleep quality because the bed was incredibly comfortable and my partner slept very well!
