This interesting , modern hotel with a nod to a gold-mine theme catered very well to the needs of our large conference group. I enjoyed the modern design of my spotless 6th floor room with its mine-carriage mural. The level of service shone, from the housekeepers to reception to managers. The chef, particularly, took great pride in his work and... More

Room was fine but for one out of five evenings I didn't have clean towels. Breakfast and parking not included in price. Food very pricey and not very good. Will not stay here again. Staff was friendly though. With loadshedding no arrangements for lighting on stairs and to/from room.

It would be remiss of me not to write an updated review to the one I previously wrote on this centrally located hotel. I was part of a larger group that stayed in the hotel for a few nights again at the end of May 2015. As always, the staff & management was impeccable at every level. The restaurant staff... More

Firstly, we got a great deal on this hotel. That said, it was definitely worth the money. The room itself was actually pretty nice.

Internet worked well, elevators did not. I needed the exercise... More
