We checked in very late, which was real easy but with no luggage help. Was quiet inside rooms (Which was not expected, because it is next to a highway) and slept in a nice cozy bed. Underfloor heating in the bathroom was an absolute plus.

Excellent stop over, travelling from/to Durban to/from Johannesburg. Welcomed by friendly Staff. Hotel is always very clean and well maintained. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food court is walking distance. Discount Voucher received for dining at the Mug & Bean. You can also order food from the food court delivered to your room. Thank you!

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.
