My husband & I both agreed after staying at the Ovolo with all the inclusions, especially the delicious SA Red wine @ Happy Hour, the 24hr Nespresso machine & lollie bar in the... More

Great location and exceptional customer service. A lovely atmosphere at Happy hour each night, with wine and beer to enjoy (on the house), along with self serve lolly bar to keep the kids happy. Only one negative - very small negative - some fruit at breakfast would be good, as breakfast was mainly pastries, but very lovely if you want... More

It was our 1st stay at Ovolo, but won't be our last! The staff were fantastic, no request was an issue for them. They were happy to assist. The room was ideal. The location couldn't be faulted. Some sweet wine or cider in the mini bar for the ladies would be greatly appreciated. Can't fault Ovolo Laneways! Regards, Belinda and... More

What a great hotel. Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. Kids had their own twin beds. All drinks are included. Breakfast was great. Staff was super helpful. Overall best hotel on our trip. On site laundry do it yourself. The staff also left 2 cupcakes from Santa on Christmas day. So cool.

NOT recommended. Stupid tiny handbasin-a simple wash and shave involved wet legs and floor. Worse was the noisy air conditioning which the air con engineer (who I met in the lift !) said the required remedy was too expensive for the management to remedy.The compressor unit resonated all night and should be relocated to the hallway. The manager however said... More
