        the location!

        decor a bit worn; the hotel was due to close for for refurbishment.

      • Group of friends

        The staff was very friendly, good location, spacious rooms, very comfortable beds. We were more than satisfied.

        There was no hotel book in the room. It would be very useful so you do not need to ask so many questions at the reception

        The Hotel served its purpose, as we were there on business. Service was good (Management / Concierge), except for Dish restaurant. Food in Dish was extremely good, pity about service. Location was brilliant. We got a really good rate through, the hotel would not in my opnion be worth its regular rates. Cleanliness of rooms

        Inconsistance between the amenities / fittings between our two rooms. Poor service in the Dish restaurant (very slow; being offered dessert before we had even received our drinks,shortly after ordering our mains); Problematic key cards; general minor gripes; room size and facilites. We aren't difficult travellers and again, the Hotel suited our needs well.

        We had to be moved four times during our stay due to faults in the rooms we stayed like leaking airconditioning, faulty door handle etc. The manageress was always unavailable and when she eventually came to see us, she was offensive and sarcastic. you will also need to notify for your car half an hour in advance and pay for the parking and extra amount of R79 per night. The hotel is old with partial renovations.
