Firstly we did not choose to stay at this hotel! We actually broke down outside on our way back from Kruger National Park on the way to Johanesburg! We called into the hotel for help and Angel the reception was truly an angel and couldn't have done more to help, giving our breakdown service directions to the hotel and even finding a charger for our mobile and letting us charge it behind reception. Our breakdown service was unable to get anyone out that night so we were forced to stay the night at the Malaga. We had dinner in the hotel as part of the DBB rate which was very reasonable. We were able to order anything on the menu as part of the package and both had fillet steaks which were the best we had in S.A. during our three week trip, the starter and desert were equally lovely. Our room was clean and very comfortable, particularly the beds - we slept very well. The room had a little private patio area outside overlooking a large pool and very well kept grounds. Every staff member we came into contact with were great and although it was a relief to get back on the road the next day we were almost sad to be going!
We intend to return to S.A. and would definitely stay at this great value hotel en route to Kruger.
