The check-in welcome was very warm. It took out of the disappointment caused by long waiting time at gautrain station for shuttle collection. The room i liked it because it was facing the garden. It was clean and well cleaned daily.

I really would have loved to have a hot shower. The water was luke warm, maybe next time you will turn up the geyser a bit. The hotel does have beautiful amenities though and is rather central. Maybe the next visit would be better.
