Visited this hotel on the recommendation of the tourist info in Hoedspruit, for one night during a month in ZA. Gorgeous setting down in the canyon, wonderful African decor, great food, VERY nice service (thank you Portia and Linke) and beautiful gardens. When we arrived there was an impala by the bar, a wildebeeste or two visible from the viewing deck and baboons on the lawn. After dinner the zebra had come up to the lawn - and they approached us to "say hello"! For the really fussy people out there, it's not exactly a perfect five stars in terms of international standards, but to not to give it five stars here is to quibble needlessly, because in terms of ambience, friendliness, generally very high standards, and VALUE for money, it is really fantastic. The next day we drove down the western side of the canyon but the views were so-so because of the weather. What we would recommend is to take the boat trip on the dam lake, from where we got some amazing views of the Three Rondavels and found an excellent "boat host" in the form of Heinie (spelling?). Please note, I ticked the internet as being free - that's because at ZAR 20 (USD 3) for the duration of your stay, it practically is free!
