Superb 9.0 From 12 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Friendly staff and great service
Overall my stay here was very pleasant. The staff were warm and welcoming and took extra care to arrange for a very early morning departure and even made sure that I had breakfast before I left. The room was spacious with separate bathroom and closet areas. My one complaint is that the room was quite chilly with no heat and my visit was in the winter. Electric blankets are provided for the bed at night but, the room itself was too cold to comfortably relax in during the evening. (I understand that central heat is not common in SA but, a few small space heaters available to guests who request them would have made my stay a 5/5.)
