I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. The location is not one where tourists would stay so its really just aimed at conferences. I probably would have gotten lost if I drove myself so thank goodness for the shuttle from the airport. The service I got was very good all around. The food in the restaurant both at dinner... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel in December the quality of the stay was not worth our money. The TV didn't work. The curtains were so thin we couldn't sleep in. The walls were thin and the staff were unfriendly. Never again!

I stayed in this hotel for about a month while involved in a work project with about 200 colleagues from around the country. It is quite convenient for the purpose, but really just average. There are many little things that are not perfect. There is no air conditioning in the hall where we worked. The air conditioning in some of... More

I stayed here with my fiancee in August 2014, our room flooded and we were moved after complaining to the manager. The stay was not bad after that. We decided to return this week firm the 8th December for 8 nights at a cost of R9k! We were told by the Chef that no guests should eat more than 2... More

A functional conference venue let down by terrible internet, repetitive meals (good standard) limited breakfast (poor standard) and poor decor and acoustics. The staff really shone as being super helpful.

It was not so easy to find the hotel. The reception area looks good. The staff at the reception is well trained and very professional. The first impression was great. My room was okay. Nothing fancy but comfortable. The only concern I had was the stained carpet. Good was also average. The hotel has the potential to be more than... More

I realize this review is long, but please read it if you're seriously considering using this venue. I visited The Lakes Hotel & Conference Centre on Saturday, for a Matric Dance. As a function venue, surely all aspects of hosting an event are meant to be catered for. The parking lot was a nightmare - there was no-one present to... More

I stayed here for two nights while a attending a conference, but can honestly say that is nothing that made me feel that I wanted to stay any longer. The rooms were clean and presentable, but the decor felt a bit cold as there were only blinds, hardwood floors and absolutely nothing on the walls the only cool part was... More

Waterfront view looks great however the facilities really needs attention. The reception was very cool with a bit of confusion as to who is to help the guests checking in. My room was satisfactory but had no window view to speak of - it may be the wing of the hotel I stayed in - with all the windows looking... More
