Spent one night in a family room. Room 108 avoid. The TV signal was weak, no CNN etc. The shower head was broken, the warm water tap produces a low drip only. The room is in desperate need of renovation and is dated. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. Wonderful area, worth a visit. Breakfast very good.

No greeting when arrived with no help to the rooms. Personal care was lacking compared to some other Protea hotels visited. The food was very average with some items not...

We had a fantastic Easter weekend at the pool - great room, awesome staff, in particular Mammabatho, Pius, Big Boy, Andrew, Thato & Maqhawe (reservations). The Spa was outstanding! Breakfast and Dinner rates were outrageous - paying R850 for 5 people (2 pensioners 1 child incl) for breakfast is a shocker. Dinner was worse at over R200/head and one meat...

We arrived on a Monday just too late for Breakfast. The staff was so helpful and have immediately let us settle to have a meal from the Lunch Menu. What impressed me was that they were busy with maintenance and cleaning of the hotel. The decor is done with great taste. The most beautiful bar well stocked. Our food was...

We had a wedding to attend and had to get a room. We had a room for 2 adults and the kids under 12 could stay for free.. Its not a bed and breakfast so its advisable to make yourself antiquated with surrounding restaurants.

We stayed for two nights and found the staff friendly, the resort was nice and we used the pool which was quiet and pleasant. Unfortunately the accommodation was spoiled with a horrible out of date nasty looking bathroom that was seriously in need of refurbishment. We were in 104.
