Beulah was absolutely brilliant and so was Elizebeth. Good value for money.

We visited the place to attend my sister graduation at University of Johannesburg. Staff was friendly. We arrived 21:15 and we were warmly welcomed. When we arrived heaters were switched on. Bedding have electric blankets, every room has its own DStv channels. Breakfast was good and prepared on time. I would love to go there again for holidays. Thanks for hosting us.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5
