“Wedding venue”
Reviewed December 26, 2005

The hotel is supposed to be the epitome of the capital city and although it gives a great view of the town due to its location, perhaps it would be advisable for the catering and also marketing team to do a serious brain storming session.

it is disappointing to attend a function and realise that there are no eating utensils that have been provided on the tables (wedding of Mr & Mrs B. Makhakhe - 24/12/2005)and guests have to keep requesting for forks and spoons so they can eat their food and deserts.

The salads were great but the hot meals were quite dissapointing. as a frequent visitor of the place, I believe the standard has drastically dropped.

This hotel has not improved at all over the last ten years, if anything it is going downhill which is a great shame. but just reflects the current climate in Lesotho.

The hotel needs refurbishing throughout. There are two restaurants, in the main one, the quality of food is average. In the Chinese restaurant, the qualityof food is extemely variable, orders are interperted and presented as seen fit by the staff not the customer, and it is more quantity than quality. Room service is not a good option.

The gym is a venue where only the desperate would venture. Dark, dank, musty. with old equipment.

The Pool area is adequate and the views very pretty. On a Friday they do a happy hour with snacks which is very pleaasant.

THe Business centre is a total waste of space, the Internet rarely works and the German owner is not doing anything to rectify the situation and cannot be contacted for Queries. The girls sitting at the desk are very pleasant as are all the hotel staff.


The bedrooms are adequate, ones at the front have small balconies and great views over the town and superb mountains.

The staff do not appear to have a great knowledge of what is happening around the town, or maybe not free to offer info. but they are alert to advice you regards security risks outside the hotel
