There is not much good to say about this hotel. It is in the downtown area. The staff was not reactive to the needs of their guest. I found out I had a telephone but it was only for appearance as there was no plug. I was told it would be fixed but after five days there was no change. They do not have Internet, I was told it was coming but it never came. There is no room safe and the doors did not seem very secure. The breakfast was okay but my eggs on the first day were cooked onto the serving pot. It would be better to stay at a bed and breakfast in this town according to all the locals I talked too. The safety of the area is also somewhat questionable.

Worst place I ever stayed at. Rude kitchen staff, no smile, no greeting, reluctant to assist. False advertising on website, saying there are multiple dstv channels. There is ONE that needs to be shared by everybody. ONE! The remote and lampshade is disgutingly dirty. Both soap holders are broken in the bathroom. No drain cover in the sink. Will NOT recommend this to anyone!

The bed sheets were not clean. Noise outside at night. Hotel very old indeed.I regret the money I have spent in a very low profile hotel.Maybe I expected more than they can offer for R750. Cleanliness has to improve drastically.

But the staff was friendly and shower was good.

They gave me the WiFi code but only for a single device. I needed a pin plug as an adapter. Once again they provided me with just one. I just felt like they were being unnecessarily tight.

There is a bar. The bartender was very nice. I can't promise he'll be there when you are but...

We had to book in due to a family emergency in the area.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. The hotel should be commended on that.

We were unhappy with the fact that we were given 1 towel instead of 2 in a double room. Had to call for another. The bathroom extractor fan brought in the exhaust fumes from the main road outside.
There was a function in the hotel and the noise levels were crazy. Also, someone had been smoking in another room. The smell came through everytime I opened the door.
Carpets in the hallway need a good cleaning.

We stayed at the Crown hotel on the evenings of 25 & 26 December. As our family homes were full of Christmas cheer my brother & I booked two rooms with our spouses. We just popped in to check availability. The receptionist was friendly and as there was availability we were checked in quite speedily. The room was big and spacious and clean. The rooms had a bit of a musty smell as the carpets looked old and very worn. The bed was comfortable and bedding was clean. As our room faced the main Street, we did hear a bit of night time traffic. We had to request towels on both nights as there weren't any except the branded one. There wasn't a two-pin plug either (to charge our phones)... But in both instances we were quickly assisted: fresh towels were brought in and the security borrowed us his personal plug. The location is also very convenient as there is a Debonairs pizza and Steers at the garage across the road. Parking is also safe & secure. Would stay here again as the b&b in the area are very pricey. Thank you
