The rooms are big as well as the bathroom. The view is beautiful and the bar is very cosy. We had a buffet in the restaurant which was great, especially the dessert. There is not much to do in the close neighborhood.

Hello, it is the perfect base for hiking the Northern Berg. We stayed there as we were hiking the Amphitheatre. The hotel is about a 30 minute drive from the park gate.

"Any of the rooms overlooking the dam. The call of the Fish eagle is always prominent everywhere."
"Modern rooms are best very quiet and have a good view of the dam"
"Second floor rooms have a great view"
"Nicest rooms are a long distance from the main facilities, so you have a long trek for every meal, and nobody to assist with you baggage."
"Executive rooms offer best views and are spacious"
US$69 - US$150 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
