I read the review of MikeV and I had exactly the same issue on the same day. This is not the first time I've had issues particularly with the breakfasts that have gone from a gourmet offering to a basic breakfast.

The property looks great and I enjoyed my morning walks. I would definitely recommend it to anyone whether they want to go as couples or with their kids. It is an ideal weekend getaway. Everyone was friendly and helpful in terms of things to do and directions to getting there.

The location does it. Entering the hotel, you see down the hall this great vista of a tree-lined bend in the Vaal River. You then look around at the delightful art deco style, and your imagination is captured instantly.
