This beautiful, historical building - a national heritage, I believe - is centrally located and easy to find; within walking distance of some fine rest and offers a fabulous breakfast with much variety and choices. The staff were probably of the most friendly, helpful and efficient hotel... More

What a pity we decided to overnight at this place .....!!! Small, in need of a really good clean,badly equipped room with a tiny shower and very little water pressure. Having paid R35.00 extra for secure parking we had to enter the hotel by means of the staff entrance past the kitchen as the guest rear doors were locked and... More

The hotel is situated close to the airport, railway station and inter-cape bus stop. Rooms were nice and offered decent space. For some reasons, we were not able to find any deal inclusive of breakfast. Suggest you get a deal which includes breakfast. Paying up for breakfast at the hotel could prove to be expensive. The hotel is close to... More
