Dedicated management and staff, always willing to assist and accommodate their guests. Provisions on site is excellent and the security is very good. Allocation for parking vehicles are provided and good, but the disabled persons parking needs to be reviewed.

The accommodation provides a very relaxed environment, especially for events as tense as comrades marathon. The location is perfect, just a walking distance to the the beach, if you need a recovery swim
