We stayed there for one night only on our way to Port Elizabeth.This small hotel makes a better impression outside than inside.The rooms are very basic though clean.The so called air conditioner( half broken ) could be barely felt on a cold, rainy day. The bathroom should be refurbished - plumbing problems. Our group arrived late in the evening and after receiving our keys we were told that there won't be anybody at the front desk at night which made me feel quite insecure at night.My room was on the 3rd floor.There is no lift in the hotel .We were lucky that our luggage was brought by the porters.What improved my impression was the breakfast which was very substantial and tasty. A pleasant touch was added by the fact that your omelette is prepared after you fill in the order form where you specify the way it should be done.It's not only prepared to your personal liking , it's always fresh and hot.Their guava juice was delicious as well.To sum it up, for only one stay it's not that bad.Would I stay there again? Probably not.
