I was looking for self-catering accommodation. This was all I could find on the internet for Kathu. The room was looking very clean and tidy.

The premises looks like a block of flats with an open corridor running for the length of all the rooms. There is ample parking, although not always shaded parking which is often necessary in the heat of Kathu.

One light bulb was missing, the other light did not work. No teaspoons available. The room is a very decent size, but the bathroom is exceptionally small and not well laid out. The shower is so small that I would describe it as very uncomfortable and I am not a big person.

I discovered fleas in my bed during my first night of stay. After I reported it to management the next day they told me they will relocate me to another room. Upon my return late the next afternoon after work I discovered that I will need to do the moving on my own. Management later provided assistance.

My next room looked the same, but without fleas. It had a queen size bed and all other amenities were in the kitchenette. I liked the fact that I could prepare my own food. The rooms also look very clean and tidy.

I felt as if the personal touch is missing. This is a facility for the masses and not aimed at individuals looking for something personal. This accommodation might be handy for corporate bookings for a team etc.

I was treated with respect, but I asked to have two bottles of water in my room on the second day and was told the first two bottles were complimentary. I was wondering why they could not give me the two bottles as a courtesy gesture, taking the fleas and untimely relocation of rooms into consideration.

Depending on what you are looking for in your stay, you might perhaps search for something else.

I will be reluctant to recommend this facility.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a double bed. Single beds too small for comfortable sleeping.

From the moment we arrived at this inn it felt something was not right reception resembles a security guards hut inside the gate - the beds were extremely uncomfortable - both taps in the shower leaked - the shower head practically rusted away - calcium build up in the toilet - and not one hook to hang clothes The outside toilets at the restaurant with doors wide open and insect infested were awefull The food was oily This establishment has all the appearances of a hostel with a canteen and is certainly not for the discerning traveller Grossly overpriced and may be more suitable at half the rate

Great place but the shower heads are not in a good condition, they need replacement coz the water doesn’t spray normally and it’s irritating. I also didn’t enjoy dinner, i had seafood 👎🏽 Rooms are super nice by the way.

Rooms are spacious and clean and the food is outstanding. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is very safe. I like it because it’s central to where I need to be with my work and far enough from the city noises.

Clean and tidy rooms, equipped for self-catering. The restaurant’s food is amazing and staff very helpful. There is a nice pool an braai area as well. Right off the N14 and close to a mall if shopping is required.
