Such a beautiful place. I stayed on the top floor with stunning views of the Vaal. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to break-away not too far from the city!

Constant online access is a necessity wherever you go. My first irritation was that this hotel has a 200 MB per day limit on WiFi. I stayed there for 3 nights and the WiFi only worked for a few hours on one of those nights. Beyond this the hotel was okay. It is on a prime site with a beautiful...

Quaint and cozy with awesome views of the vaal river. Not too far off the main freeway but tucked away like you're nowhere near the city! Friendly staff, we were well taken care of, even though there were just 5 of us there, for the day on business. The Matthew's restaurant prepared a lovely lunch and continous snacks through the...
