Verified reviewexcellent

Their hospitality was marvellous and really enjoy the stay. We had a lovely refreshing holiday in a very neat spacious room. I suggest they have 161 channel rather than 163 and 164 since the episode are repeats. Channel 161 is a competitor of SABC channels. Besides that All went as expected. We don't regret at all.
