What caught my attention right from the start, was the well-appointed room. Dark wood will always please me, and this one was right up my alley. Then I noticed the positively huge balcony with a view over the area. at night the lights work wonders for the soul. I would've slept with door open, but the balcony is not isolated... More

Hello! So we stayed at this establishment in April and were quite impressed by the quality of service we received. Sometimes the breakfasts lacked variety but other than that we had some great treats via room service! The staff were friendly and the views from some of the top floors are amazing as you can see the port as well... More

I spent three nights at this hotel. I travel a lot through SA and a bit internationally. This hotel has the worst room lay-out I have ever seen. There is no mirror by the hairdryer. The toilet is built in half underneath the vanity. There is a smokers corner right outside my bedroom window! The "fridge" which reception claims is... More

After arguing with management cos we had been travelling for a while they agreed to give us a larger room as there were 3 of us.

I spent two nights at this hotel and enjoyed the friendly staff and the hotel in general. I do have one gripe in that our meals were included in the package and everything either had a Tikka or Curry flavour.I enjoy a good curry but when it is served for lunch and dinner it gets to be a bit much....

I stayed here for a recent work trip and it was a great experience. The breakfast was massive and wide ranging, there were also friendly staff ready to assist. The room was spacious and well appointed. If I had one criticism it would be that the shower was a handheld that had no housing or curtain over the bath, so... More

As a family, we had a great stay at the elegant Coastlands Musgrave. I had booked two deluxe rooms (interleading) and we were very comfortable. Cleanliness for me is key at a hotel, and I must admit, the rooms felt and looked fresh. The beds were made up morning and evening. We enjoyed the ample space on the balcony as... More
