    Excellent accomadation

    From the moment we stepped into the receiption, we were greeted with a big smile and a very friendly welcome. Check-in was fast. Our room was very comfortable. We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon at the pool side with hot beverages. The waitress was very friendly. All in all a wonderful stay.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Did not sleep a wink

    I stopped over in Bloem for the night enroute to EC.. from about 22:00 until 03:00 in the morning the person in the room next door had the music soooo loud I could not sleep. At first I was convinced there was a club nearby only to realize that the music comes from inside the hotel. I am still not sure how the reception desk was not able to hear this sound. I eventually called the front desk and they sent security to address the issue..

  • 8.0.Very good

    We stayed for one night as we had an AGM and dinner to attend. Reception excellent when asked if we could move from 2nd floor to 1st due to my wifes not liking stairs due to her knees. However the bacon at breakfast was COLD but the choice of food excellent.

    An OK Hotel

    It was a quiet night with few guests. The room was good. The bathroom needed a bit of a clean. Dinner was limited and too many heavy dishes on the menu. Breakfast wasnt taken.

    Wxcellent overnight stay

    An excellent overnight stop. With all the outdoor amenities i.e. swimmingpool and restaurant one could easily stay longer. Would definitely recommend the hotel

    Stop-over with Family

    Stayed over one night on a stop-over from Pretoria to Cape Town with the family. Great service, good facilities, good location close to the highway.Not much else to do in the area, but very functional as a stop-over.

    Room service a huge turn down

    My only complaint is that when ordered room service the price on the menu and the bill differs. The excuse offered was that I had an old menu in the room which I feel was not my mistake. I choose my dinner base on the price given in the menu and not be surprised that it cost in the end R65 more than expected. For that prize it could have eaten out. Thank you
