A kind and comfortable hotel. The rooms are large and well appointed - good lights, TV and aircondtioning, plus an excellent bathroom....with a bath. We arrived a day late following a car breakdown, but they did not charge us for the missing night. The breakfast is first class as are the scones and tea. The evening meal was delicious. The...

Chose the hotel because there were no real alternatives in the town. Average, but not bad. Nothing much to say more. Food was ok, not great. Situated in a dangerous area. There are shops nearby, but it might not be a too good idea leaving the hotel after hours.

Stayed a night with my husband on the 2nd floor. The hotel is very much Protea style, which is nice. It has a lift, cool if you have to haul down a lot of luggage. We paid just over R1600, excl. breakfast, for a night. We ordered the sunrise continental breakfast for R155 (the menu says R125), honestly for that... More

I found the hotel to be average at most. It could do with an overhaul. the room I was in was okay I suppose. The food no so great served oily dried and bland food all day long. The service was not great at all. The only possible reason I would go back is because we had no other choice.... More
