We stayed for one night only en route to Cape Town and a friendly welcome made us feel at home. I found the room rate a bit high especially because there is no aircon in the room and no television (basic things one would expect in a hotel room). But given it was New Year's Eve and we were desperate for a room, we gladly paid the rate. The room was impeccable although the decor is a bit over the top (taste does differ) - a clean and fresh room is always a welcome sight after a long journey! The lovely, comfortable and large bed compensated for the awful pillows. In fact, the worst pillows I've ever found in a hotel room. Breakfast was advertised as a "buffet" but the buffet was nowhere to be seen; breakfast was ordered off a menu. Having pointed out the above, it was still a good stay because often the small irritations can be overlooked if the service is good.
