The hotel is on the river shore about 1.5 km from the town center. We stayed there 7 nights as our base for the Sardine Run. Nice basic rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and good restaurant made it a good place.

Spent one night here on a self catering basis. Located at the side of the river. The town itself appears quite neglected by comparison to its former self when I was last here. Very enjoyable with excellent accommodation. The drive from Umtata has stunning scenery...More
