Overall nice facilities. This was not the first time I stayed with you. Your breakfast service is the most depressing I have ever seen in the country. It is very slow to get served there but you seem to have numbers in the kitchen. You need to re look this.

I was exceedingly impressed with this stay. Rooms were large and comfortable. Loved the built-in kitchen and the personal touches like in-room filter coffee, biscuits, and the very affordable and substantial "honesty bar"! Breakfast was a treat! Fresh, made to order and, once again, small personal touches like homemade jams and of course the Nespresso machine! The location was great... More

Really good. Great size room. TV a little small for room size. I think a 40" or larger would've been better than a 32. Cupboards adequate but like all hotels the addition of a chest of drawers would be welcome. Room big enough to accommodate same. Breakfast excellent.

This is a nice place for a stopover in East London. The room was fine, had everything we needed. Also the information in the folder on our room was great, since we wanted to order something delivered to our room. The only thing we missed was the warm welcome we were getting used to in South Africa. We felt like... More

The location relative to the venue for my meetings was good and the room and sevice excellent. There was load shedding during my stay and the generator kicked in within a minute, so that is not a problem!

The host at this establishment was very inhospitable, not providing a welcoming environment. The TV channel options, including the reception was poor. The conference facilities is too close to the kitchen/dining area. The breakfast options was very limiting, and not catering for our diverse nations.

Stayed at the Quarry the weekend of the 17th and had a very nice stay. The staff go out of there way to make your stay pleasent. There is a lot of bird life in the water of the old quarry. The staff that do the breakfast or on the ball and the selections are very good.
