    Stopped over for one night with my family. Check-in and check-out was quick and hassle free. Rooms are neat and tidy. Very friendly staff. No restaurant at the hotel but there are a few close by and they "give" you a discount at mugg & bean for dinner and breakfast. A nice hotel for short stop stops.

    First stop over at this hotel and just what a tired traveller needs. Rooms are clean and neat and under floor heating in bathroom was just a delicious treat! Could not have asked for more for a one night stop over. Staff are friendly and helpful.

    We stayed over for 1 night from Jhb back home in Ballito. It was Easter monday evening and getting across the Jhb bound traffic was extremely tough and dangerous.

    This is my second stopover at the hotel. It's perfect for one night, whether you are on business or on holiday. Rooms are clean, neat and practical. The staff is friendly. They don't have a restaurant, but you can eat at any of the takeaways 24/7 or the Mugg and Bean 06:00 to 20:00.
