          The hotel isn't 5 star but it has good facilities, nice grounds and a very good breakfast. The rooms are fine, but the bathroom was very tired. An easy walk to the town and handy to the falls. The staff were helpful.

          We will be staying here in the next month. Please tell me if you have a hair dryer in the room. For my iPhone, camera, etc. do I just need an adapter or also a converter? Thank you!

          I believe that the room offered both South African plug outlets and UK ones. To be on the safe side, bring a travel adapter.
