Reported that the wifi is not working early on my second morning there. They said they will look into it but was still not working when I left. Didn't ask again... Lovely pool on the roof. Breakfast is excellent.

All was in order even your staff is awesome. Except that I didn't found my welcome note inside my room(on my last stay) because that makes me feel as a valued and special guest. i know all your guests are special.

A pleasant hotel with good facilities but they are still undergoing teething problems with new systems installed at the hotel. My aircon made a constant clicking sound and was attended to by maintenance but continued to make the sound the whole night, it even changed the temperature in the room and switched off by itself. The dinner from room service... More

Value for money and a great Hotel, with exceptional service. Walk across the road, straight onto the beach. Take long walks on the esplanade, walk out onto the breakwater piers and catch a bus or taxi into town straight on the doorstep.

Stayed here for Comrades 2015. Rooms have been refurbished. Nicely done. Excellent showers. A stones throw to the beach. The Internet Wi-Fi gave a lot of problems. Breakfast was plentiful. Check in was painless.
