Mandla Mandela, Madiba's grandson, has visited the hotel and he had only positive things to say about it. He is also very thankful that the Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) were able to preserve the memory of his grandfather and still honour him within the establishment.

The house hotel is filled with pictures of the former head of state and even includes letters that Mandela had written on those very grounds, including one he had written on the 13th of February 1990, two days after being released from prison.
