          We stayed here because it was close to the Spionkok Battlefield and the Royal Natal Park. Hospitality,meals and service was great. The only problem we had was finding the hotel from the directions given on the website. The roadside signing and directions supplied needs to be improved.Access road may be difficult in wet weather.

          The mountain and nature view from our Balcony. The reception and assistance from the staff. Wow our stay was very comfortable especially The room that has so much space to move around including the choice in their bathroom (shower & bath tub). We had a wonderful stay.

          staff was well responsive in making our stay fine. They were able to quickly attend to an issue as well. Just a little more attention to detai, I feel is needed in ensuring that the rooms are properly cleaned. Otherwise...Thanks for everything.

          Accommodation was adequate with all in working order. Dinner was not the best, but this can be expected when ordering from a set menu at an establishment that does not have huge numbers coming through the doors. Breakfast was good and freshly prepared with a good continental spread.The Sandford Park is blessed with exceptional staff, friendly, efficient and always ready to go the extra mile!
