We stayed there on 2 different nights during our roadtrip and the first night I felt the room was not cleaned properly as there was still a cigarette but in the ashtray on the patio and the room was a bit dusty. The welcome was friendly. Wifi on the first night was slow. The second night we had our own room wifi which worked better. The rooms itsself were lovely decorated and cosy, very nice and comnfortable beds for a good night sleep after a long day on the road. A good overnight when travelling through the Karoo. I can't comment on the variety or quality of breakfast as we didnt have any.

Was initially concerned when I saw the exterior but was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. Spacious bathroom, comfortable beds, and nice breakfast. Was indeed a good place for an overnight rest.

I was extremely exhausted having had an intense 2 weeks of non-stop work and then the long drive, my sleep quality was really good, I just didnt feel very welcomed as the lady I dealt with asked me to make payment upon arrival which I did prior to my arrival as per booking.com's instructions, she was quite adamant on recieving Pop, which my banking app wouldn't allow that evening for some reason, I was really beyond exhausted and didnt like feeling like I was a freeloader that would disappear without paying, either than that, all was good
