My husband and I stayed here for two nights over Easter.
Location and close proximity to Kruger were fantastic as you were a couple of minutes away from the gate.
Did not try breakfast while there but had dinner twice and there was a good variety to suit most tastes and plenty of food available.
Room was needing upgrading and was certainly not as clean as you would expect. There was a broken tile in the bathroom and the tile grouting was really dirty.
Wifi in the main area was good.
Chocolate on the pillow both nights was a nice treat.
Another couple with us had no hot water until the day they left which was poor and reported to staff but not fixed. The new manager, whom they spoke to was excellent and having only been in the job for 6 weeks will no doubt get on to addressing the maintenance issues as this could be a wonderful place to stay.
Overall we did enjoy our stay and the only other comment would be that the pool water did not look clean. It was quite murky and cloudy with lots if dead bugs and leaves etc. in it. Could do with more frequent cleaning.
Quite expensive for the standard of the rooms.
