I stayed at Country Lodge for over two weeks and was very happy with the hotel. The rooms are simply decorated and very clean. The security is great (cameras in the halls and a different key for each hall). The multi-use outlets are also very convenient. Breakfast is good and after 10am the breakfast area is no longer used so you can relax there and even borrow wine glasses and plates if you'd like. There are also tables in the garden area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a bank with an ATM a two minute walk away.
The amenities at the Fairview are very convenient and we ate most of our meals at one of their four restaurants. They don't offer wine by the glass, but have a great bottle selection and allow you to take away an unfinished bottle. We also used the travel company at the Fairview. Note that you have to pay to use the pool or lounge chairs, but can relax and do work at the poolside restaurant.
The only drawbacks were that there was no fridge in the room (though there is a common one downstairs) and you have to borrow the hair dryer from the front desk and return it every morning.
