Enjoyable and relaxing. Mall next to Emnotweni offers lots to do and works well together. Staff were friendly and courteous. The kids enjoyed all the added benefits like: free pop corn and slush puppy. One day is not enough and will hopefully get to spend at least a weekend there again.

The hotel staff was very friendly. I would have loved to get an executive room with a nice view. The breakfast was very average and people like me (vegetarians) are not really considered. Pork was not put separately from other foods for people who don't eat pork.
