We stayed here in December 2012 as our family holiday Christmas getaway. We rather disappointed as they advised that the hotel had an extensive upgrade. It was lacking character and felt cold. The facilities are old and few. The food is great and in abundance. The hotel is fine for a stop to do and see other attractions in the area, but does not offer much for family entertainment at the hotel. Dinner is expensive! While in the area, try induna adventures for some white water rafting, was great family fun!
