Nice hotel very handy for Kruger Park

Durham, United Kingdom

We stayed here for two nights on a recent tour, hotel is very nice built on raised walkways rooms were nice although some may find them a little on the dark side. The most important thing to remember is not to open windows or leave the door open otherwise you will be invaded by the monkeys who hang around here. We came back one day to find a small monkey sat with both paws up to his eyes peering into the room to see what was on offer, one of our group didn't heed the notices and had left a window open and returned to about 14+ in the room and they had been through everything. The hotel staff were not allowed to go into the room to clear them out as he'd left the do not disturb sign on the door! Hotel is right at the park gate, indeed on the first day when we were leaving the park to go back a leopard crossed the road right in front of the vehicle and crossed into the woods which bordered the hotel, there were also small impala etc wandering around in the gardens. Evening meals were taken outside in a large area with lots of choice in the buffet and cooking station making pasta etc. There is a small shop and a nice bar area which overlooked the park.

They will ruin your special occasion

Polokwane, South Africa

My family and I visited the Hotel to celebrate my wife’s birthday. I wanted to book a spa treatment for her but I had to call the Hotel 3 times before the information was sent to me as the website was outdated and displaying 2016 pricing. I also requested that the room be made up in a special way on the evening of her birthday. Needless to say but as expected this was not done. I requested that they reserve a nice table for us at dinner on the night of her birthday as well and once again this was not done. I can’t believe the levels of incompetence and the lack of customer service. This lack client service has ruined what was supposed to be a special day. Don’t stay here if you want to celebrate any special occasion as you will be disappointed.
