We stayed here for one night during the week and overall had a good experience. We paid 620.00R for a double room which was huge (excluding breakfast)! The staff at reception where very friendly and welcoming. The room was a bit vintage-like and was comfortable. Cleanliness overall was okay but could do with cleaning the window ledge in the shower...

A typical small town, 2 star rated hotel. Stayed there overnight 2 weeks apart, food was excellent both times. Rooms are clean with sufficient towels in the bathroom. The manager greets you upon arrival and staff are available to help carry the luggage. Value for money stay.

New hotel in Springbok offering a welcome change from overpriced and average offerings in the town. Although new and modern by Springbok standards it is quite cold and clinical. But for me ample parking and on site restaurant will bring me back.

This Art Deco place hasn't had much done to it since the fifties judging by the furniture and fittings. We were greeted by a delightful your woman who seemed to be the only staff on duty and so played the role of receptionist, waiter and bar tender. Took us a while to understand why we couldn't go into the dining...

A pleasant 1920's facade in the middle of town would make you think it would be a nice place to stay. It's not even cheap as we'd recently paid less to share to lovely 4 bed house with breakfast at Elkoweru a few minutes walk away....... but unfortunately it was flower season and it was all we could find. This...

Denise Thank you for your feedback. As mentioned you did arrive early, half an hour before our normal check-out time. The guests still occupied the room and hence we had to wait for them to check out. We had a delay in our laundry service and could therefore not have your room serviced as soon as we would have wanted...

Great value for money! You get what you pay for. Friendly and professional service! Rooms have TV and aircon - it can get quite warm in Springbok! Located conveniently in the center of town close to restaurants. I would recommend that you include the breakfast option - The breakfast that they serve is quite nice.

The hotel has very friendly and helpful staff and the rooms are spacious but a bit shabby, and they are badly in need of a facelift. OK for an inexpensive short stop. Well located in the centre of town, with the Tauren Steak House within walking for an excellent meal.

We arrived very late at night, after trying to check several other options. We finally settled for this old fashioned, colonial hotel, which didn't have internet in the rooms, nor in the lobby. But we needed a clean bed and especially a shower, and this hotel offered one of the best I had in Africa, in retrorespect.
