Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

As always service and accommodation were excellent! Great view from room balcony and spacious accommodation. An excellent 'meal with a view' next door at Orange Restaurant makes the stay perfect. Followed up by a peaceful breakfast. Attentive and helpful staff. Will definitely return and recommend to others, both for business and holidays.

Hi Kabelo - it was our absolute pleasure to host you and your family. We are perfectly situated to explore the wonders of the Lowveld, after which, you can come back to be wined and dined at the on-site restaurant before you head back to your suite for a special turn-down treat. Do visit us again soon. Kind regards, Jaclyn
