    This hotel was a nice surprise. We went through the battlefields and stumbled on this little gem. Nice location and friendly staff. Food is good and well priced. Do yourself a favour and drive the back roads between Durban and Jhb for an unforgettable experience.

    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.
