Having Just returned from a week in Johannesburg, I can truthfully say, the staff at this hotel played a major role in our having the most spectacular time!
Being greeted with such warmth that I felt like a long lost family member that had just arrived home, was the beginning!
I am deeply ashamed that I didn't take the time to learn the names of the 6 ladies behind the front desk , or the gentlemen who parked and retrieved out car daily and nightly! This is not a crew who are merely doing their job, but the most hard working, charming, whatever you need group of hoteliers I have ever met. NOT ONE member of this hotel's staff was ever unpleasant, rude, or even just a little lukewarm! We witnessed the rudest, most obnoxious couple trying to get free internet in the lobby (NOT GUESTS-I was nosey I listened in) and the cool, firm but still charming way the staff dealt with this was unbelievable - I felt a kick in the pants was warranted.....
The Warmth people talk about in Africa, can be found consistently here, and I was so happy I changed my end of year plans to tuck in a quick stay at this hotel again!
Rooms are lovely, spacious and little touches like a bowl of M&M's in the room, biltong to greet you, refilled bottles of filtered water every day, and rubber duckies to play with in the bath (YES I DID) just add to the smile this place will plaster across your face!
The pool is brilliant too, with the option of taking your cocktails or meals at a table IN the POOL TOO!! And free sunscreen tubes are left in a tub of ice for guests use!
Anyone reading this will know how many hotels in how many cities and countries I have stayed over the years, this one is the most welcoming, efficient, comfortable, happy, lovely, charming place I have stayed in to date! EVER!
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE AT The African Pride Hotel FOR ONE OF THE BEST STAYS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! NGABONGA!
