Loved the new rooms and the space to work. Enjoyed the fact that food was delivered to room. Loved big shower and bath. Staff was friendly and helpful. I have seen conference facilities - they are also great. My car is safe and parked close to my room always!

I thought the rooms (older wing) were dull, dark, boring, terribly small and smelly. The bathrooms are dreadful. The curtains were also far too short to cover the windows so with every car passing the headlights would blind you. They should upgrade these old rooms or advertise them at half price!

Great hotel, great location, great staff. Would be nice to have a 2-prong adapter in the room to charge cell phones. Conveniently located next to Spar, restaurants, petrol station and various other shops. Close to town and airport.

Good accommodation is always at a premium in Mthatha. I was satisfied with the good service at the Savoy Hotel in Mthatha, and can recommend it to any business traveler. The breakfast included was fine and service very efficient.

The hotel has recently added a new executive wing to match the best available in the area. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with modern layout and facilities. Large shower and standalone bath is standard. Well worth the extra few Rand you have to pay!

Hotel is not worth the price, should be half the going rate. Rooms are mediocre, bathroom is tiny, bedding looked dirty. Room booked for couple but we found it set up for one person.Take your money elsewhere.
