A motel-style hotel with secure parking. Clean and comfortable with a good, firm bed, but the room was really small. It was fine for one person but two would get in each other's way. Rather expensive for what it offers. Breakfast at Mike's Kitchen and supper at Pavarotti;s was good, but no fruit for breakfast or vegetables at supper. The... More

One could hardly swing the proverbial cat in the room, there was no a chair to sit on as an alternative to the bed (no space anyway) nor a bar fridge (again no space anyway). Polite but sometimes disinterested service at reception, depending who was on duty. Room was clean but net curtains about to fall apart. We will avoid... More

A motel/hotel set in a shopping area with every need within 2 minutes. Rooms were small but ideal for over night staying. The complex was well patrolled and security was good. No dining area but Mikes Kitchen was on the doorstep. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

I really enjoyed my stay and will be back every month for my business trips. Everything was clean and neat and the service was excellent. I had to make a booking at the last minute and I was very pleased that you could accommodate me at such short notice.

The Hotel is situated just outside the CBD area and in a good location. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The room were clean with all the basic requirements such as DSTV and a nice big and clean shower. When visiting the Mthatha, I would recommend staying at the Savoy.

It would be nice to have a single sofa in the room for sitting purposes if one does not want to sit on the bed. The service and cooperation of staff was good. I will come back to the hotel. ………………,,,,,
