I stayed here for 7 days for a series of meetings so I feel adequately expereinced to judge this hotel.
This is not the fanciest poshest of establishments (the restaurant and terrace are lovely; the pool area could do with a bit of an upgrade) but it sure does make your stay comfortable.
Breakfast buffet serves a wide variety of fruit, breads, eggs etc; the dinner menu has a variety of really tasty meals. Be ware the 28% surcharge on all food in the restaurant though.
The rooms are perfectly comfoirtable, tidyt, the bedding of great quality and the bathroom equipped with hairdryers and toiletries.
The highlight however, are the staff. Whether the wide smiling security guards on every floor who greet you with a salute or a jambo, Benson and Felix at reception, the many wonderful housekeeping and room service staff who made me feel special. And Helen, in the spa, who gave me the massage of a lifetime. These people deserve awards for their kindness and could teach us South Africans a thing or two about how to treat guests.
So a big thank you for every smile that came my way.
(There is also a great running route past state house and into an Arboretum just outside the hotel-about 6km return and very worthwhile and safe.)
