The Colonial on Arundel Guest Review
Average Guest Rating:
out of 5
based on 1 review.
A really relaxing stay. We were made very welcome on arrival (despite being early) and the previously requested game drives had been booked for us to ensure that places were available. Many little touches to make the stay memorable and we particularly appreciated the large sitting area where we could relax. The game drive with Conor was also excellent and thoroughly recommended (proximity to Addo is a big plus).
