"We stayed for a weekend (two nights) and although we didn't want our room cleaned in between nights they did make sure we had more than enough towels, soap etc. It was very quiet and relaxing and the pool was open untill 11:00pm or midnight. We will stay there again."

"I enjoyed my stay. The rooms were clean and it was the only place I could find with 3 double beds in a room. A bit of a walk to the falls (15-20 mins) but my family is into fitness and the walk was a good way to exercise away from home."
