I'm nature lover so this was just the perfect place for me & my daughter though she kept me on my toes. Being far away from that madding crowd was so calming. Will definitely visit again but alone so that I can sleep as much as I like. The staff was friendly and my daughter loved the pool to bits. Nonetheless my landline was not working for when I wanted room service although I reported it. Second night was a disaster as the neighbors and their kids were noisy, we could not sleep with them chatting loud, and kids running on the corridors and the banging of the doors.

Our stay at the Hotel was very relaxing.  The Superior rooms are very spacious.  Staff was very friendly, welcoming and always helpful. Would definitely recommend it for a long weekend brake away.  (Photos on web is true)Magda StormVaalpark 2016
