We stayed for one night in room 1, which is sized like a 3star London hotel, barely room for the bed. Situated right above the open kitchen you hear clanking and talking till late at night. The only window looks out to a wall with a lamp only 2 feet away - imagine my shock when we saw someone walking by, and realized outside the only window was actually an indoor corridor to the lift!!. Can you imagine a 5 star hotel room without a window?!?! To top it off, the bed was quite uncomfortable and air con noisy.
On the bright side, the dinner was excellent, both in service and quality of the food, and breakfast was nice.
Staff were nice and professional, but - we arrived early evening and were told things would soon close. We went out half an hour later anyways and discovered a great wine tasting street party with music and lots of complimentary wines served, just down the block. We were really surprised the staff hadn't recommended it, half an hour later and we would have missed out the fun.
Had the manager or any of the staff asked how we enjoyed our stay we would have definitely told the, but I suspect they know why they don't ask the tenants of room 1...
Our one and only disappointment out of 8 hotels on a 10 day South African vacation
