    This picturesque hotel offers luxury accommodation to corporates and tourists alike. They also have conferencing facilities and are able to host small functions with the best view ever. Gorgeous finishes, artwork and luxury living across the board. Definitely worth the stay.

    Only made use of the conferencing facilities. Nice Sound system and multimedia projector. Suitable for a group of 10/15. Quiet and comfortable. Enough safe parking for conference participants. Nice pool area.

    Although I sleep ok, traffic at 03h30 every morning had cause me to loose sleep time! Room was next to a busy road. Property was secure and good, room for improvement with dinner menu. Breakfast time did not accommodate 07h00 start @ class.
