Stayed here on Business for a few days. First thing to note is that the hotel is a very impressive building, and nicely designed.
The staff are also very obliging, friendly and helpful. Though unfortunately there was no early check-in allowed. I was advised in advance that the only way to guarantee an early check-in is to book the night before.
The room itself was nicely designed and furbished. However, while the room design is great for individual, I do not think it would work very well for two people sharing a room. The WC and shower cabinets each have glass walls. The lights also take a bit of getting used to, with all the controls on the headboard of the bed.
Nice TV in the room, with many channels, including English football games.
Also there is a WI-FI allowance, however, I was requested by the system to purchase more data, when it also advised me I had only used half of my allowance!
Room service usually good. Though on one occasion they forgot replenish the coffee, and on another occasion they forgot to replenish the bottled water. Bottled water is important to me, since I would not wish to drink the tap water. Also, irons are provided on request, but the iron I was given on one occasion would be considered unsafe in the UK. Also, the ironing board was past usable condition.
Breakfast also very good. Though again, on a couple of occasions they forgot to offer me a coffee. I always have coffee first thing, and had to find a member of staff to get me a coffee. But staff at breakfast also very helpful.
There was one lady on the reception desk who remembered me from the beginning, and I never had to give my name or room number when I spoke to her - very impressed with her!
Overall, I loved this hotel. Since I travel alone on business, the rooms are great for me. However, there are a few areas for improvement in the service and housekeeping.
I will doubtlessly use this hotel again next time I visit South Africa on business.
