At the edge of the zoo!”

It is a nice hotel, where everything works fine. Rooms are a bit small though. Pool is even tinier! However it is nice sipping a drink and watch the animals from the zoo as the hotel sits right at the fringe of zoo. It is close to a shopping mall, and to a fabulous restaurant New York, with some of the best food and service to be found in all of South Africa

friendly staff and modern rooms”

friendly staff, next to the zoo could see elephants.

had a good stay, the staff was friendly and helpful I would return there any day, the only disadvantage is that the hotel is a bit hidden away which caused us getting lost one night
