I would agree with the previous reviews...there is no customer service; the lady at the desk was rude and was least bothered about the client’s needs. When requesting information, everyone transfers your request among themselves. You would not know at the end of the day who will treat your request. Is it laziness or lack of interest??Name it as you... More

Very friendly staff , we were lucky to get an apartment on the top floor with 2 balconies and fantastic view. The bedrooms were on-suite, with a large lounge dining are and full kitchen large fridge freezer . Parking in the Hotel Parking levels is cheap and safe.Ideal for 2 couples or a family.

I stayed at the hotel as a weekend get-away with my partner. The rooms were clean and tidy but a bit on the small side. The staff were very friendly and the service was great! The view was absolutely gorgeous overlooking the city, mountains and fountain especially during the morning. The buffet breakfast was definitely a highlight during our stay... More

I just stayed at the Fountains hotel on a business trip and was very disappointed. Rooms are very basic, furniture quite old and worn out, the best part of the room is bathroom (which is still very basic). In my room (527) there was about 30 - 40 cm of free space between the bed and wall (on the other... More

I have never stayed in a Hotel, for 9 days, where all the Staff were so friendly and helpful. I had a very large apartment kept very clean by Mohammed; the Restaurant produces amazingly good food (huge buffets) & the best "Bread & Butter Pudding" I've ever tasted. Front of House staff all 1st class. For the price - you... More

Just stayed at this great hotel, great facilities but the best thing about it all has to be the wonderful staff who nothing seemed to much trouble to help and advise. All in all a great experience and already looking forward to going back next year. A big thank you to Owen and all his great staff

I am a local and had to go for an interview at the hotel. It was my first visit there. I was totally lost as to where to park, etc. And then this angel appeared, Thys. He made us feel so welcome and showed us around. We felt like royalty. This is the kind of people we need in South... More
