After reading some of the comments on Tripadvisor regarding Kings, i was rather nervous to check in for my 4 night stay at the hotel. However, on arrival at the reception, I was greeted by friendly smiles and was able to share a laugh or two which i felt was really comforting. I went upstairs to my room and the... More

Felt unsafe -- that was my main problem in my isolated apartment. The rooms are clean enough but there is a lot of road noise. We had to walk miles to get to our room. I was actually scared going back to my room at night as the lighting is poor. No one to take your bag. More an apartment... More

Starting at the beginning - check in, what check in. We disrupted the lady manning the reception desk which was made very clear by the way we were treated. No service, no help, very unfriendly and unprofessional. Our room we had to go find ourselves, which took about 20 minutes due to no signage or logic on room numbers. The... More

Upon first glance the hotel looked quite nice and since we were eager to find accomodation for our stay in PE and it was getting late, we checked in. The rooms had a smell to it and though it looked 'hip' it was clearly dirty. So much so that all we wanted was for the night to be over so... More

Very quite, felt like home away from home. Clean and modern. Value for money, the staff were very helpful and went the extra mile with every enquiry we had. Will definitely go again. Thank you for a great stay. The mall was n little empty but felt nice not to bump into anyone while shopping.

Landed at Port Elizabeth and reached the hotel by around 10pm. The lady at the reception refused to hand over the keys without us paying up the balance of 50% of the amount for the three rooms that we had booked. 1. If they were so particular they could have collected the entire amount in advance, so be prepared with... More

This is Apartment Hotel on top of a shopping mall. Check in was horribly slow and unfriendly. Reception functions only during certain hours and there is no telephone in the room to call for help if needed. Broken fittings, stained linen and electrical problems stare at you as you enter. My Bathroom lights were dead and I could not call... More

This is a self-catering apartment hotel attached to a shopping mall complex . We only stayed for two nights. We found it difficult to find the flat . The complex somehow seemed to be abandoned with all shops closed at night ,so we did not feel safe . No windows . No reception service at night .

We stayed in a 2 bedroom self-catering apartment for 1 night which was very nicely decorated, comfortable, clean inside and well situated outside the busy city centre. The fact that it is attached to a mall with restaurants and shops was a bonus as we did not have to drive anywhere. My son loved the indoor heated pool on the... More
