We stayed at the hotel for four days to celebrate our silver wedng anniversary - a fact which saw us upgraded by the hotel to an exquisite room with a canal view from the basic double I'd booked. Beautifully decorated public area and room, with an extremely comfy bed and lovely linen. Slightly small bathroom (although given the upgrade I shouldn't complain!) but well fitted out with nice complementary lotions and potions and plenty of towels. Some other reviews have been less than complimentary about the hotel staff - we found them to be excellent striking the right balance between seeing to / anticipating guests' needs but not being overly obsequious. Excellent buffet breakfast with all items regularly replaced or filled up - eggs, bacon,sausage,toast,bread,meats and cheeses,croissants and pastries - however, not included in the room rate and somewhat pricey at 16 euros per person! There's a good sandwich shop 30 seconds away from the hotel who do croissants and coffee for 3.50 euros (Berts Broodjies). Coffee,chocolate and teas are available 24 hours free of charge from machines in the lounge area, and during the day there's a varying selection of yummy cakes, biscuits and pastries to go with it. Beautiful hotel in a lovely central location. We chose it for a special occasion and it would have lived up to our expectations even without the upgrade. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
