We were there to attend a exhibition in Midtrand, just one station to take the metro to the show hall, it's really convenient. Advantage of the hotel: nice building appearance, convenient trafic communication, compact and style room design, good bath and sanitary facility, nice employee. Disadvantage: awful and smell lake, noise room along the street, poor breakfast that I've never... More

The only problem with this hotel is the location but otherwise it was very nice and seviceable. I have no complaints and the breakfast was good too. I might not stay here for a vacation spot but for what I needed it was great. I would stay here again when in the area

The check-in was probably the worst I've ever experienced at any hotel in the world. It appeared to be a training problem, but you expect better from a 4-star hotel. However, after that I found the stay pleasant. Staff were generally polite and the service good. The food was of a standard that you expect and the room comfortable and... More

The check-in was okay - not as friendly as indicated - and the room is indeed a bit old and worn, but it was clean, the bed and linen good, the towels very nice, and television with selection okay. I had breakfast with the room...it was average to above average. Fruit, cereal, yogurt, made to order eggs, etc. Had to... More

The centurion lake hotel is definitely a place for family members, tourists or business people alike. Although the rooms may seem a little dates at first for the western visitor, look again, absorb the colours of the land and you will get it. The staff are some of the most genuine friendly people I have ever met, and they even... More

If you prefer contemporary interiors and luxury, keep looking – perhaps as far afield as Sandton (30-40km away). If you are satisfied with simple comfort and helpful, friendly staff, then the Centurion Lake Hotel should meet your needs. Olivia and Janine were first to impress me with their efficiency upon initial enquiry and booking confirmation. Steve took the baton next... More
