The greeting on arrival was very pleasant, all COVID protocols were adhered to (face masks, temperatures, greetings protocols) so feel safe and welcome. The room had all needed facilities, was well appointed and had a very comfortable bed. A large communal area was available with Gymn equipment and TV. A lock-up garage housed my vehicle. I highly recommend Sonklip and the Van Niekerk's.

Alta was very friendly and helpful. Having a garage was a plus as our car was safe. Homemade rusks and milk provided was really nice. Alta went out of her way to make us comfortable.

Clean, quiet, perfect overnight option for a traveler. NO road noise!

Self catering is a bit of a stretch as all we access to was the microwave kettle and fridge. But that was a small concern. There is an indoor braai...so if I was more organised......One enters through the garage but don't let this put you off. The room is perfect and the electric blankets made it cozy. There is a large and in winter freezing cold common area. Hence the need to braai. DSTV is available and box office works. All on all a great half way stop for the N1.
