Very nice!Posted Sep 21, 2014
Pros: Great location on the banks of the Sabie, food was diverse and plentiful, rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were the standout, forever helpful.
Location: We stayed here so we could have some comfort and enter and exit the Kruger when we liked. The kids enjoyed looking for elephants at night with torch.
Family holiday with kids and parents, wanting a bit of comfort when compared with the accommodation options at the Kruger Park rest camps. Great location, forever friendly staff and comforts of a good hotel. We loved the deck for sundowners, spotting elephants with our torches at night, the buffet was diverse and plentiful, and sitting next to the file with a glass of wine whilst being entertained to some wonderful African dancing and singing! The kids had a ball watching the bushbuck that lived on the hotel grounds and our elderly parents were just as happy watching. The swimming pool was great to cool off in after a dusty day in the Kruger park, where we managed to see the Big 5 on the first day including a leopard eating an impala. A rare and special holiday it will be difficult to forget.

Great locationPosted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: Location, surroundings
Cons: retrain the front desk and reataurant staff.
Location: Go spend every available daylight moment in Kruger NP
The closeness of the hotel to Kruger NP is a real plus sadly offset by the staff and the state of the external restaurant.

Good HotelPosted Apr 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our second stay in this hotels. Only problems were aggressive monkeys and noisy Baboons. We went in school holidays and found the evenings food had not got the luxury touches it previously had and the although all the staff were outstanding the grill cooks were somewhat off hand and only seemed to want to chat among themselves until they could get away. However I would certainly stay again,

Big Game HuntPosted Jan 8, 2014
Pros: Gorgeous facility. Incredible location.
Cons: Have room ready at check in time, especially when walk-ins were given the same room set up immediately.
Location: Booked a game drive thru hotel. All as promised, unfortunately game was scarce that day.
We spent New Years 2014 here. Nice accommodations. Wait staff on deck outside main restaurant wasn't as good as we have grown accustomed to in South Africa.

Great stayPosted Oct 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Although we stayed for only 1 night, we would have liked to have stayed longer. Our room was large and very comfortable. Included was an amazing buffet dinner and breakfast.

Friendly hotel very close to Kruger National ParkPosted Sep 6, 2013
Pros: The friendly and helpful staff, the clean and comfortable rooms and the outdoor seating and viewing areas and bar overlooking the river and KNP.
Cons: The quality of the food served in the evenings.
Location: Less than 5 minutes drive to Kruger National Park. Drakensberg Mountains, Mholoholo Wildlife Centre, Jane Goodall Chimp Institute make good days out.
We've stayed at the hotel several times during the last 7 years because it's within 5 minutes drive of Paul Kruger Gate (entrance to Kruger National Park) and therefore ideal if, like us, you love self driving in KNP and entering it when it opens at dawn, as that's the best time for viewing animals. The hotel is large and suited to couples, families and as a conference venue. The rooms are fairly spacious, very clean and have comfy beds and good sized bathrooms. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and if you're going to miss breakfast because of an early start to the day they will make up a substantial brunch box fresh and ready for collection from 5.30 am. Breakfast in the hotel is fairly good too, with plenty of choices, but unfortunately evening meals are a let down. There's plenty of buffet style hot and cold food and lots of choice, so you won't go hungry. But the quality of the food is somewhat disappointing and some supposedly hot dishes are cold because they haven't been kept hot adequately. Meat and veg. are quite well prepared and cooked. The cold buffet style starters and desserts are hit and miss. Some are OK and some awful.

Nice and close to the Park GatrPosted Aug 28, 2013
Pros: The hotel is well sited at the entrance to the park and is ideal if you want a nice comfortable stay
Cons: Wifi is restricted to the Bar and lobby. Would be excellent if it was available in the rooms
Location: Kruger National park
A nice and clean and friendly hotel close to the Kruger park gates. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our stay, using it as a base for trips into the park. The hotel is well sited at the entrance to the park and is ideal if you don't want to pay the high prices of the game lodges in Sabi Sands etc and want a bit more luxury than than the SANs park rest camps.
