Santie, Lut, and the rest of the team will make you feel right at home. They went out of their way to make sure I’d enjoy my stay. Upgraded me as a compliment and received me in the middle of the night at 4am. Breakfast is SUPER. Please do yourself a favor and visit them when in Joburg, you will definitely thank me for it!
