I've been at this hotel twice now, just last week and for a week in 2013. It is very comfortable, the staff is terrific, and the food is good. It is within a gated business park, so very quiet after hours. It is more like a bed and breakfast than a commercial hotel, which was great. It is within walking... More

I was there in september 2009. and loved this hotel. The rooms are big, confortable, clean,... The staff is very kind and the breakfast was delicious. The place is very silent and is perfect to relax.

upon my arrival on my room the bathroom was dirty. it was obvious that someone had used it a day before because the flow was dirty and there were hairs for that person floating all over. my recommendation is that prior a guest checks in, someone must check the rooms as to whether the they resemble your quality.

The reception was excellent. cleanliness in general, bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent. sense of humour of the staff mncwaa. the setting of the dining room, the meal was very good.

Great service, good value, very accomodating staff & management. Brenda on reception was very welcoming and informative. The outdoor pool helped to relax me post the Comrades Ultra marathon. The food quality & standard was exceptional and great value. The grounds were immaculately maintained.

Aircon was not working, as button broken. One day no clean towels were left. The fixtures in the bathroom should be tightened and there should be a key in the bedroom doors. The menu at the restaurant is limited when staying for ten days. At breakfast there was no butter for the last three days.

Dear Peter. Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for taking my call yesterday. The state of the linen was inexcusable and I have taken it up with my housekeeping. The hem had torn and should have been replaced. You asked for additional pillows on the last night and these were taken from the laundry. Unfortunately... More

The place is excellent. Considering that it is located in town and in a busy office park, one never feel the city vibe. Its like a country place far away. The level of professionalism - staff and quality culinary makes this place the first choice. The room are modern and stylish. Its the best you can get in PMB.

You would have to go a long way to find staff that were more helpful and caring than this team. Everyone from the front desk, restaurant, management and even the accountant, could not have been kinder to us (under our difficult circumstances) than this team. The room we had also had a temporary problem with the hot water, but we... More
