It was a very nice experience. The bedding was super clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious. I appreciated the stocked mini bar. The staff are very nice and helpful. They helped me with airport transfer service 4 times. The driver, Mervyn, deserves mentioning, too! The location is fantastic. I would definitely stay here again.

Last night in South Africa

We were pleased by the reception, both efficient and helpful. The room itself was lovely... a great take on how to modernize decor. It was quiet (we were at the back) and in a great location.It was a great choice for the final night of our trip.
