This is about the only hotel to stay at if going to the oldest national park in South Africa. It is a somewhat old, tired place that has a certain charm. The rooms are large and the beds were OK, but it had an ancient safe which needs a skeleton key (I would not trust using it), a somewhat dirty shower area. There is a coffee maker, but no micro or fridge. There is free wifi that you have to use in the lobby--which has some dirty rugs and musty chairs. There is a pool in a nice setting. Buffet dinner was fair as is the breakfast buffet where they ran out of items and did not replace--orange juice, fruit especially pineapple which the area is famous for. You can eat at a Wimpy's near the hotel which is in the Engen station and is open untl 7 PM.
