This place was amazing for the price! A great deal that came with breakfast, en suite bathrooms, clean rooms, great customer service, and a nice looking facility, as well.

Cilla and Lionel picked us up and left our navigation issues behind us. Rosamund's ...

It was a pretty hilarious group of guys and girls, who were dancing, laughing and started chatting to us. They all turned out to be from *****ia originally, but now have businesses in South Africa. They ...

... Moses. Elaine and Rolf are such proud great grand parents and obviously get such joy from her and the girls. Margie and Bobbie and son Nils came, Frank and Brenda MacDougal and Eddie Green – so lovely to see him again.
