This is a lovely venue, has great potential. Unfortunately it is also very badly managed. We had a meeting here today, the meeting room was run down, peeling paint, etc.

The reception was the worst, Mpho at reception is very rude and unhelpful, the rest of the staff tried their best to make up. But we still had to even ask for milk for our coffee! The lunch was quite good, friendly service as well.

This venue is best avoided, it needs management, such wasted potential.

This is a wonderful setting and could be so good! Went there fo Sunday brunch with good friends and had a lovely time together! However the food was awful! It was a buffet and it wasn't good! I can't think of anything good to say about the food - school dinners springs to mind ! When we arrived we were given a lovely glass of sparkling wine and that was a lovely touch. Good wine list. Lovely friendly staff but food .....awful! Amazing view, amazing venue so such a pity they didn't get the food right! Live entertainment was wonderful! Great way to spend a Sunday morning!
