You are able to park your car ..."more

"My mother and late father used to stay at the Merino Inn 40 years ago and my mom has said on many occasions that my husband and I should too when we drive up to Mpumalanga, as her memories are all good. Well, now we have and so are ours.

"The room was comfortable and afforded me a good night's rest after a long drive. Regarding the bathroom, I would have preferred having a shower. Unfortunately there was only a bath that tends to use far more water than a shower. "

But it was clean and the beds comfortable."
