Just spent 9 nights at this location. The staff are excellent and the hotel manager should be very proud of all of them, they do an excellent job in looking after you, being friendly polite and helpful.
There is a good transfer link in the mornings and the afternoons when you need to go for the hotel to and from the office. The transfer boys were really efficient and safe drivers. The transfer to Clearwater Mall is rand 180 return. Lots of shops and a good cinema.
I only had one meal in the hotel which was okay. The downside to the hotel is there is no bar! So I highly recommend the Green and Gold which is just around the corner above the Shell garage. I was a single girl and felt safe enough to walk up and back without any worries. The pub is a real local pub, staff are friendly, menu is huge and the food was okay, cheap, cheerful pub fare.
My room was 217, a nice corner room at the back facing the business centre. Ask for a back room as some of the rooms face the highway and the highway kicks off at 4am! The room did have some maintenance issue. The window didn't close, I did mentioned it and it got closed only for the
Cleaner to open again and then I had to take a teaspoon to the window to get it closed again. My sink in the bathroom was cracked and had been for some time. It leaked!
Wifi is okay, though you're forever having to log back in and they ask you marketing questions which is annoying.
I would return again!
Thank you for looking after me. Nikki
