The staff are amazing - Yolanda (the manager), Desire, Cindy, Melisa. Very helpful and informative. The rooms are cleaned and proper. We extended the stay and the staff helped us nicely.
The breakfast is just ok, continental and very limited selection. The same breakfast everyday. But the breakfast room is spacious and it has nice balcony to watch people in the street.
What is lacking in this hotel is its location. It is in the middle of the town and city center. It is in the St.George's mall street, where a lot of shops, cafe and food stalls are happening DURING THE DAY. The thing is that all that happening is over at 4-5.30pm. After 5.30pm, everything is silent, quite, the street is dead, the shops are closed and you would feel stuck in the middle of nowhere ( I really mean DEAD EMPTY streets).
It takes 30 mins walk to crowded area of V&A Waterfront, which is fine during the day. But walking to and from the hotel to crowded area after 5pm is a pain! Streets are empty, offices are empty, just beggers around, some homeless scary people around and security officers around.
The hotel should provide shuttle to the V&A waterfront of big happening area. Defintiely don't stay here if you are alone.
Though the hotel is decent with wonderful staff, the location is a pain after sun set ( or after 5pm is). It gets VERY hard to walk to places after 5pm as the surrounding of this hotel is defintiely close and shut down
