Thank you to the staff who were particularly patient and helpful with our 3 children and for making our stay very comfortable. Our room size was spacious and large. Unfortunately we did not get to swim in the heated pool. Maybe next time.

We really enjoyed the hotel. The staff is great. The bedroom is very comfortable and spacious. The view from the room overlooking the Marina is excellent. The locality is great and the food was great.
I will certainly recommend the destination to our family and friends.

All our needs were well taken care of. Food was excellent so was the service. It was wonderful to enjoy sitting on the balcony of the suite overlooking the canals. The trip up the river was great too.

Wow on arrival and seeing the room overlooking the lagoon,stunning. The room was great. On inspection of the bathroom my heart sank, the basin chipped and rough, the bath the same condition. Patio would have been great with a table and chairs, instead of only two plastic chairs.
Ok supper menu looked great, good prices, Soup of the day 100% then decided on rump steak and what a shock 2 pieces stacked on top of each other Never seen rump that small and that thin, Pink inside but as tough as nails. Chefs response when questioned that is what they gave him to cook. Well after that was not looking forward to breakfast, nice arrangement but could not get out there quick enough. Place needs a new chef and maintenance. David the waiter was great and the place has so much potential with a little bit of tlc.

Room Tip: Preferred the bottom rooms then one could walk on the grass and put your feet in the lagoon.

Thank you for a pleasurable stay over Graduation weekend in Grahamstown,you made it a memorable one. Our stay was a good one, the food was good and the staff was friendly. The quality of the rooms was a bit disappointing because some of the furniture was very old and the TV was very hazy, the bathroom ventilation device sounded old and broken. In spite of this we found our stay a very pleasant one.
