    Shocking

    The buffet ran out of breakfast as well as dinner. We were a group of 14 people with young children and had to wait till after 20h30 for the kitchen to make more good. There were more than the allowed number of people staying in one room. There were beer cans left on the steps after guests had a party. Very dissapointed.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The room is comfortable, the bed fantastic and the infinity pool with view of the Kruger and elephants eating right in front is priceless. The staff is friendly. The reason for my low score is the breakfast. I booked this stay to go to Kruger and spend the golden hours in the park. The 6.30 breakfast time would allow me to have a quick and good breakfast before I go in, but when I arrived at 6.30 they were still setting up breakfast. I left after 7 AM and breakfast set up was still not ready so I just grabbed a quick sandwich and yoghurt. When I mentioned it to the staff at the reception they just shrugged and said, we will tell them... There were 10 other guests also eager to have an early breakfast and also left without full breakfast. Disappointing.

    Absolutely loved the hotel, the setting was awesome and the staff very friendly and helpful. The food was great! on the 27th April 2021 we arrived at breakfast at 6:30am only to find they were still setting up. Everything was only ready at 7am which is pretty unacceptable as we specifically wanted an early start to the day. We also had a leaking toilet and had to request 3 times that the toilet be fixed. We had a broken kettle which was replaced with another broken kettle, it would not switch off. Other than that I will definitely be back!

    Everything was perfect EXCEPT for housekeeping. I had to phone reception every afternoon with our return from our day tour that there was no bottles of water and the coffee, sugar and milk was short. We ended up buying our own coffee,sugar and milk to have morning and evening coffee.
