My husband and I stayed at the hotel over 3 nights, as we were attending a family wedding. The check in was quick, the staff were pleasant. The rooms were clean and spacious.
There is a tub in the bathroom with a shower nozzle overhead, which is not particulary my favourite. They need to consider changing the curtain to the doors or maybe redoing the bathroom.
There were no lifts from the basement parking, which we needed to pay for at R50.00 per day, and one has to climb at least 2 1/2 flights of stairs. This was not an easy task, especially being dressed in a sari.
On our last night, there was a couple next door who were fighting and the language that was used was absolutely shocking. We informed front desk and a call was made to the couple. The next morning, they had started their fighting again. That was a real draw back as we did not have a good sleep.
The breakfast buffet was really good, there was a wide range and it catered for veg and non veg guests.
