We really enjoyed our stay there. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the chef went out of his/ her way to prepare off menu meals for my kids. Best of all, they had the cbeebies as part of their DSTV bouquet. The only downside is that, they said there was a heated indoor pool available,... More

The staff was very friendly and went an extra mile to make the children feel right at home by providing appropriate entertainment. The hotel had a kitchenette so it was easier to make and wash the milk bottles. The children beds were on the floor, so didn't have to worry about anyone rolling off their bed. The only area of...

We spent 8 days of our honeymoon at this hotel and had not one issue. The breakfast every morning was just great. The restaurant and room service food... More

The rooms and hotel staff were lovely but the restaurant served the exact same meals for the buffet breakfast everyday. It made us question whether anything was freshly prepared. Improvement is definitely needed!

It was our first visit to this hotel and what an impressive stay it was. The one thing that stood out for us was the consistently great service. Every single individual paid specific attention to service. Even the hotel GM was amazing. He was playful with my little ones and they felt completely at home. We stayed in an executive... More

We stayed two nights. Our iPhone was stolen from locked luggage on incoming flight. The hotel general manager lent me a BMW and driver to assist with the police report. Rooms are great, excellent breakfast, and helpful and courteous staff.

Warm and friendly reception, spacious and cosy rooms. The restaurant staff was a bit disappointing, but the food was overall good, though. Closely situated next to Canal Walk shopping centre. Will definitely visit again
