“Room was too pricey”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Room was pricey. Our friends paid half the price because they were native S. Africans. They tried to charge us for breakfast in the morning because they said breakfast was only for one person even though we paid for accommodations for two.

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago before the refurbishment and I thought I would be greeted by the same "old school" decor in the rooms.

I was pleasantly surprised by the modern looking reception area but I didn't want to raise my hopes high that the rooms would have gone through the same refurbishment. I did lose hope when I got out of the lift on the floor that I was to stay in. The carpets where the same old ones and the corridor seemed even narrower than than what I remembered.

My room, on the other hand was a pleasant sight to my eyes. The upgrade that it got made it feel like a totally different hotel.

A huge well done to whoever owns this place. I had a beautiful sleep and I really appreciate the friendliness of the staff who were on duty that day. I would definitely be pleased to be booked in here again.

Sadly disappointed with this hotel. From the less then mediocre breakfast buffet to the loud and obnoxious cleaning staff on our floor. The window tint in the rooms are peeling, the shower leaks, extractor fan non-existent.

The garage and night club just below the hotel attracted drunks and taxi drivers that shouted and screamed for most of the night.

People were performing wheel spins and revving their vehicles which kept us all awake the whole 4 evenings.

To say us, nor any of our family and friends will not be returning unless there is a SERIOUS overhaul, is an understatement.

You can often judge a place by the way international tourists feel and are treated. In this case I was embarrassed that this was one of their SA experiences.
