Nice facility. Located on a popular and very long street close to the CBD. I was upgraded to a better room than I had booked by the kind front desk personnel, Valentia, owing to my membership of Procard, their Loyalty Card Programme. The food did not provide much options but the dessert was excellent. The room was of decent size... More

This hotel is located in an accessible part of Pretoria. It has excellent room sizes and friendly staff. The problems experienced were around cleanliness of the rooms, the smell of cigarettes in the rooms and the awkward breakfast setting due to a section of the hotel being under renovation. Staff were very helpful when it was pointed out that the... More

Not good, not bad. We got a good price, so it was ok, but I wouldn't pay full price for this hotel. Location is very good if you need to be close to the city centre, but it can get noisy at night on the weekends if you have a room with street view, we had to close all windows... More

I use this hotel for conferencing. Our delegates now enjoy the conferencing facilities after a change in conferencing menu. They listened to the complaints and overhauled the food offered at the venue. Complaints about air-conditioning was fixed within minutes of complaint. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Stayed only one night and had a compact room with clean facilities. I could not hear the traffic at all. Very near shops and restaurants as well as a reasonable distance from the train. Staff were very helpful although it took a bit of time to get my wireless connection configured.
