Checked in late afternoon. Reception staff very friendly. Asked about a room upgrade as I am a high tier member. The upgrade was granted. The room at first glance looks fine. The view from the room is excellent but it all ends just there. Once seated on the bed you notice all the problems... The furniture is old and chipped. The carpet is worn out and hard at certain spots. The curtain lining has holes in it. The cupboard is shocking. It's straight of the 1950's. It's basic plain ordinary unpainted chipboard. The tv is the only thing in this room that was acceptable. The bathroom is a total disgrace. The tiles look like they haven't been cleaned...although they may be but they are so old the in-grained dirt makes it look horrible. The bathroom wall tiles are also far below I have ever seen at any Tsogo Sun. Their sister hotel, Hemmingways offers much smaller rooms, more expensive but it's worth it. I will not stay here again until they have revamped this hotel completely.
