I was very disappointed that no porter service or even a trolley was available. I had to walk 3 times in soaking rain to offload my baggage for the week. The daily 500Mb free internet daily is a plus. Breakfeast becomes slightly boring after a week. Same every day but good quality though. Overprized at R150. Buffets are good too...

The hotel was in close proximity of halaal takeaways. The hotel breakfast per head was a bit too much. (some times kids only eat cereal). The bathroom & sleeping arrangement was good. maybe think of sound proofing passage walls, you could hear some of the guests talking & sometimes the cleaning appliances.

We couldn't be assisted with the following: glasses, no ice in the bar, hair dryer was not provided, no tissue in bathroom & wifi password was not correct. Parking was okay but struggled to manoeuvre due to space.

Just thought the rooms were a bit too stuffy. even with the Aircon on, it was still stuffy. The family rooms were very spacious. I especially enjoyed the little kitchenette. Maybe a microwave could be added to the rooms.

Breakfast was great! Training facility was good! Both lunches were very generic and reminded me of airplane food. Staff were friendly and neatly dressed. Room and bathroom was clean which is all that actually counts in my mind. Aircon in room 227 did not work properly and didn't keep the room cold.

Overall, a very pleasant stay. Better than expected. Enjoyed the dining room area ambiance. Food superb. Service exceptional. Took a while to figure out the air-con though! Pool looked appealing but didn't have the time for a swim.

Front Desk staff most unpleasant, unconcerned and forlorn. I was too afraid to ask them anything. Choice of wines at the bar very poor. Entrance to the Hotel is not easily identifiable. I wont be using this hotel again.

The room was clean and neat, very nice rooms. The food was good, but the reception staff need some work. I arrived after paying the booking in full via credit card. Reception lady said there's nothing on her system. Not very helpful or friendly. I eventually got my room key after providing her with MY booking confirmation from my side....
