4 star is most certainly overrated and at least one star too many. The hotel might have been a great property some 25 years ago but is now in need of attention and some maintenance.

Quick Night Stay
A group of 15 men went down and the service and planning of rooms and food was great. They made it so easy to arrange everyone. The food at the restaurant was great and affordable for what we received.

4/10 Fair

Expensive Winkler
I have stayed at the hotel before when it was under the Protea Banner. It now appears to be under new ownership. I was very unhappy with their rates. I paid nearly double what I paid last year for the same duration in July. If money is immaterial, the hotel is a decent choice. If budget matters I cannot recommend this hotel again.
