“Needs updating”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

This hotel is in the city (almost midcity) of Polokwane. The rooms urgently needs updating- everything looks tired and rundown - including the bedding. The room also has an interlocking door to the next room and it was totally disturbing. The other guest room light shines in your room and you hear everything.
The breakfast was very ordinary and oily.
When I wanted to book out the Hotel's credit card machine did not work. I had to go and withdraw cash. When I asked for a receipt it was also a problem and I had to wait for them to make a plan and give me a type of receipt.

overpriced for the room
it has carpets and that in itself is a hell to keep kleen
paper in the bathroom is comming off
so you can have a good sleep in the king bed of this average hotel
100 euros a night you would expect more
try a near by guest house for value

the hotel looks old from outside! i should admit, upon entering the hotel, I was blown away by the type of service i recieved! Molobane at reception, stunning and very friendly, checkin, very quick no hassles! spacious rooms even though they could use a revamp but very clean, clean bed and comy as well. had a chat with the manager Eric, well informed young man. thank you Garden Cout, will certainly come back.

Stayed here while visiting Polokwane for the Argentina vs Greece match in the FIFA world cup. The hotel is really nice but what made our day was that the Argentinian team was staying here and we bumped into players all over the hotel.

The hotel is like what a 4 star chain hotel should be like, comfortable room, nice beds, bathroom with all amenities, nice restaurant with 24 hr room service. The hotel is not a high rise and does not have elevators but that was not a hindrance for us as we were staying on the 1st floor. There is a nice pool which was too cold to use and there are small green lawns where you can laze in the sun.

However this hotel will remain special for us for the opportunity it afforeded us of bumping into Diego Maradona in a hotel corridor.

I have stayed at Holiday Inn, Polokwane with my family on two occasions and I felt welcome and needed. It was not like I was a bother to the front office staff. They try and make you feel comfortable and at home.
