I'm not sure if the smoke detector in the hotel was working, because there was a strong smell of smoke coming in through the extractor fan in my room. The room itself was spotlessly clean and the fact that the window opens on such a wide angle allows plenty of fresh air to come in. Security at the gate was stern yet courteous and this made me feel safer, especially with the company car parked outside.

Bad service ever experienced. Toilet was blocked, there were not bathroom towels and bath amenities. TV was not working. All issues were reported but no one bothered to fix them. I don't think I'll go back soon

Started an overland South Africa trip with a night here. More motel than lodge or hotel but functional. Room small, dark but functional. Breakfast is very small selection, pastries, cereal and coffee but all you need.
