Poor wifi. No one at reception on check-in. No hot water. Noisy club close to room. Sullen staff. Broken cupboard. Noisy AC that creaks and sputters. Old carpets. No locks on door. Brown and beige. Might be in contention for the prize for worst hotel ever. Stay as far away as you can. A dusty, musty 70's hell pit.

My wife and I stopped for one night on our way from the Kruger to Richards Bay. It is not the worst hotel we have stayed in on our trip but it did have some short comings.

Rooms were clean with air conditioners. Access to wifi. Room service was a bit disappointing as the menu in the room suggested a variety of meals but upon calling reception, we were told there were only 2 items available. Buffet breakfast in the morning was nice. A nice, comfortable stay!

I found the staff to be friendly and attentive but the facility's are really basic truly a 3 star experience the pool was tiny and the rooms were very out of date styling form the 80's as a pop over for a night or two nothing wrong but not a place for a holiday. The breakfast was surprisingly well managed... More

Upon arrival we had to wait in a deserted reception area for twenty minutes, after finally checking in we discovered this three star hotel has no room service and offers only a R170 buffet dinner that was shall we say suspect. When trying to checkout in the morning the receptionist credit card machine was not working and she loudly makes... More
