My room was upstairs and quiet and comfortable. I was surprised at no pedestals next to the bed on either side to place cel phone, watch, alarm or coffee/tea mugs on etc. Also hangers in cupboard were for shirts and skirts and not one hanger for trousers. Strange! Breakfasts were good. Next door is the Fusion Boutique Hotel with its...

This hotel is really grand and it felt like VIP or royalty treatment. The rooms are clean and well decorated, as are the reception and eating areas. We ate in a small side-room which was decorated and felt really special, whilst also being private. The food was excellent and the service was great. I have very few things to complain...

I went to Polokwane on business a few months ago and I was excited to stay at the Cycad as I had heard a lot of good things about the place. I loved the decor, the service was good and the rooms were beautifully appointed. I had just one problem - the air-conditioners in the rooms were totally ineffective and...
