The hotel was safe and clean but I was a little disappointed. I was there on business for 8 days and the biggest issue was the internet.
They state you get wifi with your reservation but what they leave out is you actually get 1 hour or 100 mb of complementary access daily. If you do anything online you can probably gather that your largest expense will be paying for access. Also the connection was general slow. I ended up going to a restaurant around the corner called Spur's that offer free unlimited wifi access to get work done. It is pretty much their Denny's.
Expensive for what you get. I think it was 110 RAND a day. you can walk around the corner and eat a similar meal in a restaurant for 40 RAND.
Had one drink since it was rarely manned during the day. Alcohol is so cheap in south Africa just walk across the street and pick something up for a 6th of the price and service will be faster.
The list that they had a full gym for guest use. But the reality is that it is actually a small room off the dinning room with 6 different dumbbell weight, a bench, exercise ball with no air. Treadmill that is fairly sketchy and an elliptical want to be. Was very discouraging. But there is a gym beside the hotel that you can pay for a visitor pass and get an actual workout.
No room service. You can call fast food places to deliver to your hotel room. I did not eat in their dinning room and when I went down it did not look like anyone else did.
If i ever return I will be trying a different hotel and can not recommend this one.
