    On checking in, the linen in our chalet was dirty

    The chalet was dirty, without any towels and we were moved when we drove back to reception to complain. My partner won a one night stay and breakfast when he gambled at the casino. We stayed an extra night but were told the breakfast voucher was only valid for the weekend/Sunday. Makes no sense as were not going to drive over 100k's just for breakfast. When we wanted to give the voucher to someone else, we were told it's not transferable. This was so disappointing for us. The resort could have made other suitable arrangements, seeing that we went there for my partner's birthday.

    Fantastic getaway

    My Son, Granddaughter and I spent Wed. - Fri. at this hotel. From the booking in process to the checking out process, it was only a pleasure. Your staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were extremely comfortable and we loved being on the ground floor with the huge lawn and view of the animals every day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a great breakaway. The game drive was a huge plus for our granddaughter, as this was her first time doing this. She actually wanted to know if we could not stay there forever. Well done.

    NICE WEEKEND STAY

    The stay was wonderful. Had lots of fun at aquadome. Maybe there should be more restaurants to accomodate kids for supper. Chalets are nice and comfy but aircons must be serviced or replaced kids can't sleep with aircons on that cold and cleaning service can do better, floors were very dirty. And bathrooms needs an upgrade shower was leaking, bath not fitted properly, etc
