Popped in to the restaurant for dinner as I was staying at a guest house close by. Was disappointed as there was no view due to ongoing renovations - I was looking forward to dinner on the deck. I was informed that the menu had just been revamped - I had the pork medallions with cauliflower mash, mushroom cream sauce... More

This hotel caters for just about everything. Breakfast, lunch, supper, conferences, cocktails etc. The service is friendly and efficient and it has the most awesome view from the deck over the Nahoon river.

Delia did an outstanding job helping us plan this baby shower, It was my very first time at the conference halls, the hall looked really beautiful and the ladies on duty were very helpful.

The Blue Lagoon with the Indian Ocean view is fantastic to have a morning walk down the beach you can discover all things and gives you a relaxing mood for the day. The Breakfast, Restaurant and Bar with some night events and live music on Thursdays is cool, you can enjoy yourself or have great time with friends here!

Went for a few drinks, but the waiter forgot to open the wine, actully she admitted she did not know how too. Then went for a meal, almost nothing on the menu was available, had to settle for fish. Small and very overpriced. Asked for Ice cream, they had none. I left in disgust and will never be back.

A four-star hotel that gives 5-star quality. I love this hotel so much I got married here. The deck over the Nahoon river is superlative, great and simple food on the deck for a quick snack or an a la carte menu in the restaurant. Best curry I have had in East London, Rooms are spacious and clean, most if... More
