This place is not a hotel. It's an old age home that rents pensioners rooms out when they die or are in hospital! It's dirty and the staff are rude. It's website is a complete and utter misrepresentation of the facility. I'm sure that it's against the law. We communicated our disgust to management only to be ignored AND refused... More

From the trave website I thought this would be just a boring stay with old finish. However it was very clean private and right next to everything (shops). Only sad part we were not told there would be breakfast serviced. That's sad for me but staff made us feel at home. The bed made a lot of noise thou

Horrible experience all round. First this is an old age home that rents out some rooms. It is in an awful part of town and the hotel itself is barred and gated like a fortress. Walking even a meter from the front door you can feel unsafe even in broad daylight. Everything is old and tatty - the reception, the... More

It is a residential hotel - which is not clear if you look at the advertisements. The room I stayed in did not look like the pictures. The toilet was shabby and the wash basin was dirty. The room smelled of smoke. There was only one functional lift and it was very slow. No help with luggage. Cooking smells in... More

I was absolutely blown away by the service I got from this establishment. We were welcomed friendly and were treated like royalty. The hotel is in close proximity of the beaches and right next door to a Shoprite. Parking was arranged and safe. The unit is comfy and large with all that you need for a comfortable stay. This is...

1.The Hotel is situated in the area that is unsafe. I did not feel comfortable going in and out as I wanted to. 2.Would you also add in some leisure e.g Health Spa, Jacuzzi / Swimming pools so that we don't have to go out for such services. Try and make this a one stop:) Thank you.
