“Good Business Hotel, Bathroom a Bit Mouldy”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

Stayed at the stay easy hotel during a business trip to Rustenburg. Was quite happy to be in a normal hotel again where you walk out of your room and step onto a carpet. The stay-easy is one of the only business style hotels in Rustenburg. The rest are B&Bs which are fine for tourists but a bit annoying when you are in business and you want to eat and crash.

Well situated it is down the road from the new Waterval mall and just off the N4 high-way. You can't really walk to the mall but it is a short drive. The mall has plenty of chain style restuarants to choose from and lots of shops. There are also two vending machines in the reception lobby if you feel pekkish during the night.

Check in was ok at the hotel, not overly friendly but good enough. The thing which was a bit annoying was the rate on the internet excludes the tourist surcharge fee which u have to pay at the hotel. It is only R12 but it takes up extra time for them to bill u while u check in or check out. Wastes more than R12 of your time! They should just add this onto your internet fee.

The hotel is quite new and the rooms modern. They are well layed out and have a good desk for you to do work at. The TV is a bit small but has some satellite channels and is good enough for the room.

My main gripe was the bathroom. The shower was not so clean and the grouting is going mouldy in the shower. The basin was a good size but the soap dispensor was also dirty.

I didnt overly rate the sleep as there was a car depot behind the hotel where there was a car alarm going off the whole night, bit annoying. Also the pillows are very thick like sleeping with a barrel under one's head, so slept with a rolled up bath towel. Will ask for thinner pillow next time.

Not really a breakfast person but my drive who was travelling with me was'nt overly impressed. It was a basic standard South African breakfast no frills. He was unhappy he could have only scrambled eggs i.e no fried eggs available. But then again the breakfast is included so you cant really complain.

They seemed to have a nice outside area with a pool but it was raining when i visited.

Will definitely stay again as is the only real business hotel in the area.

Was also happy the hotel emailed me a review card after my stay....but have'nt heard back from them after filling it out....

Stayed with three persons in one room, which is really very small with the couch sleeper and three suitcases, but the room was clean and the breakfast OK. Service relatively slowly, but friendly at both check-in and check-out.
The Waterfal Mall is close by, but it is a bit tricky to find your way around to and from the hotel, so you feel like circling around quite a bit, before you end in the parking lot of the hotel again.

The hotel is aimed at business travelers and covers all the bases, but has the advantage of being new. Rooms are clean and bed comfortable, lobby is well maintained and efficient, and check-in/out was done quickly and accurately. And it has a nice pool in the garden. Staff were clueless about the Internet (it took 5 people, one after the other to given me different answers, none of which were right) and the bar is not well stocked or equipped (no bottle opener!). I would go back though.
