I stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived at 10pm (closely followed by another group who arrived separately) and reception and the bar were locked up with no one to be seen. Eventually someone managed to find the night watchman. I was put in room 3, which is one of the rondavels. It did have the biggest flatscreen TV I have ever seen, but otherwise furniture was sparse - only a bed, small table for the kettle and mini refrigerator. No chair, nowhere to hang clothes etc. There was also ant infestation. In the bathroom I found that if I didn't turn off the water to the toilet, it dripped constantly and eventually flooded the floor. Having to turn water on and off at the mains every time you want to flush the loo seems a bit extreme! There was no hot water either, and the water pressure was variable (although I suppose that is not restricted to the hotel). I only ate breakfast in the restaurant area, which was nice with a great view over the lake - but my colleagues were disappointed to find no fish on offer either night from the a la carte menu.
