    I think its just the restaurant that needs to improve on the service. The amount of time they take to serve food and they never ask if the food is ok or you are happy so far. Over and above I am satisfied.

    It was a short visit in South Africa, only one week, when I stayed at three hotels due to internal problems and I can affirm that it was the best place in this period. It is worth to try the dishes in their restaurant. Recommended.
