      The room was very clean and the shower was great. Provided a comfortable retreat while in Thaba Nchu for a few days.

      Friendly service and hassle free. Could improve the check in procedure and info sharing I.e. Possible breakfast options to be explained.

      Good morningThe only problem we experienced is the tv channel, they must include DSTV and also aircon, otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
