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.

TRISH (the receptionist) IS THE BEST! :-D

... also incredible to watch the news from other countries to see how they are sharing what is happening here - they have done a good job of reflecting the mood and events in South Africa.

We parked on a local street with about 50,000 other people. South Africans seem to take their rugby very ...

... to walk long though which was good as i didn’t feel that safe but we were with locals and all was fine We were placing bets if the dude they had paid to look afterhis car had actually done it and it would still have all 4 wheels!) paying someone to look after your car is the norm here but we are yet to work out the ‘going rate’.
