Please avoid this hotel at all costs. It is old the rooms are grubby and all fixtures and fittings are falling to bits. I didn't even unpack my case for the three days i stayed there in case they got spoilt on the grime. The bathroom which appears to be located in a narrow passage at the end of the... More

This place is out of town and out of touch with what people want. When I checked in they had no record of my booking made with one of the web agents - not a good start. Then I discovered that the restaurant didn't even have one item on the menu that I could eat - just all animal products.... More

The property itself is very nice, a great looking pool, nice restaurant area, average rooms but overall pretty reasonable. However, the absolute worst service i have received, here are just a few examples: * 30 minute wait to check in, without any acknowledgement from the management team who were stood at reception. * Management team jump the queue for reception...

This was a pleasant complex although the fabric and décor of the lodges could do with a deal of upgrading and re-furbishment. To me, a fussy eater, the choice and quality of food was quite acceptable. The bar service was quirky, to say the least. The young man appeared to be surprised that the customers would like to be served!... More

Very good rates. Excellent accommodation at the new Country Boutique Hotel. Clean and spacious rooms. Good facilities and food. Excellent service from the waiters. Management needs to improve customer care services. Nearly spoilt our stay by giving dining preference to other customers at our expense.

An interesting place - the rooms were clean but they need to be upgraded and spruced up. Very old fixtures in the bathroom, some rust and dirt spots, moldy tiles, etc. The hotel grounds were nice and clean, the staff was pleasant. The buffet had a wide variety of options - some were very good, some were very, very bad.

Thank you for your feedback and we are looking into all of it, some of the older rooms will be going through a refurb later on in 2016 to address the aging of the hotel room, the food is definitely looked at daily and will be further improved. My team will always aim to make this a home from home. More

We were part of the Mustang rally and we were a group of about 124 riders. My partner and I stayed in the G-block and it was clean and modern and neat. The facilities in general were good but what stood out was the good food. All meals were tasty with sufficient variety. Will surely go back!
