I co-organize tours to South Africa, and we keep returning with our tour groups to the Benjamin hotel due to the great customer service and wonderful breakfasts. Our last stay was the best ever due to helpfulness and professionalism of the staff... from the women greeting us at the door, the staff helping with luggage, the smiling waitresses at breakfast, to the managers making sure everything was okay. The breakfasts were superb ... fresh fruit, tasty juices, yogurts, granola & nuts, cheeses, meats, eggs made any way you would like, and lots of coffee. The rooms are comfortable and each one different... none of the cookie-cutter sameness since it is an older building that has been tastefully updated. A bonus is the mini-fridge in the lobby with a selection of drinks for your evening sitting alongside the pool. The only negative was some of the sisal rugs on the floors were a bit worn, which is a minor complaint.
We plan to return next year due to the wonderful experiences we have had at the Benjamin.
