We stayed for a fortnight and can't fault the cleanliness and comfort of this hotel. The barfood and the restaurant are excellent, for reasonable (UK) prices, I just wish they had more South African dishes. The staff were lovely, just not very efficient in the morning at breakfast with te and coffees, twice I had breakfast without tea. Good variety of fruits, cereals, juices, cheeses, breads and hot dishes at breakfast. There are no shops near, the hotel offered expensive transport (10 mins drive) to a nearby small shopping centre for £15. The excursions were not cheap, either, but well varied and interesting, we went to one National Park , where we saw a lot of the big game, and did a visit to Jo'burg and Soweto.
Room safe, tea/coffee making facilities and fridge were included in the price. We were a couple of days without internet or phone, and the internet access (1 computer for hotel guests) remained a problem during our entire stay.
The swimming pool was too cold for us to use, a pity. Small garden to sit in.
