An excellent location at the best scenic route in the world. Amatungulu Tours use it for an overnight venue, which provide excellent value for money, sceneries of the Blyde Dam and canyon, and a good restaurant.

Hi, Other than those with a specific view of the canyon, all other rooms look out onto the gardens so I don't know what the specific difference would be. Those with a canyon view are the bigger units.
