I really appreciated the TLC received. The suite was very clean and interesting too. Also appreciated the upgraded bath and the equipped kitchen area. Only negative is that DSTV did not offer much. In Joburg I have the basic four channels and was hoping for a nice variety. Had a nice supper at the nearby pub--very friendly folks.
