          Does the Rorkes Drift Hotel have WFi ? We are visiting for three nights in April and it would be useful to know.

          We regret that the Hotel does not have wifi but we are able to offer the use of a computer with internet connection for guests' use. We do enjoy a good Vodacom service which can access 3g for mobile comms.

          You will find our standard menus on the Hotel Information listing on the Reservations page. We normally offer a table d'hote menu for supper with the option of a choice from the a la carte for the main course.

          If you're travelling as a couple. Are the room rates per person and per night or just per night?

          Our published rates on the website are per person sharing, or single occupancy if required. The overnight rate is half board, which includes dinner. we confirm all rates at the time of booking.
