It's difficult for me to judge this hotel in terms of value, because I went on business and didn't pay. However, the staff were extremely friendly, the food was good, the drinks excellent and the room was very comfortable.

I am a priority member of the IHC group hotels and stayed in many Holiday Inns in Asia and USA. This hotel falls a bit short from the rest. Location is excellent and safe, the compound is well guarded and the basement car park is also well lit. Parking is free just get the ticket stamped before your exit. As... More

During a recent visit to South Africa, my mother and I used reward nights to stay at the Holiday Inn Freedom Square. When originally arriving at the location, we thought the gps system had us in the wrong location because we were at a corner and did not see a hotel. The hotel sits above the farmer's market in a...
