Its no exaggeration to say this was one of my worst check in experiences ever.
The woman at reception could not find my reservation, and made no effort to try and look any further than her nose. She was completely unhelpful. I find this to be a fairly consistent experience with Protea Group hotels.
The lift was also not working.
As far as the room goes it was actually pretty good. Newly renovated and fairly spacious.
Tolerable for an overnight stay, but anything more complex than a simple bed and shower would be unbearable.
There is no good food inside of 10km of this hotel.
