In a quiet area centrally located in East London. Very comfortable rooms, very good breakfasts with reception staff bending over backwards to help. A few guests had people involved in Ironman 70.3 and had early breakfast packs for those who needed to get up early. Breakfast was on hand for the spectators as the venue was only 10 minutes away, so we missed none of the action. Not that we y in East London often, but out of the few places we have stayed, this is our favourite.

Very nice Bed and breakfast .
Bedroom spotless and the maid really are good.
Decent channels on tv.
Bathroom is by far one off the biggest and shower you could fit at least four people in it.
Breakfast was tasty and well presented plenty of choices ,
Very quiet area it’s only the birds that make any noise.
My only gripe is and it’s not the fault off quarry lake is
That East London has problem with there Wi-Fi so in other words does not work.

The staff was friendly , they understand the value of customer service and the level of professionalism exceeded my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed Room 15 , it felt like I had my own cottage with a private entrance . Please make sure to always book me for this room when I travel to east London again. Many thanks and happy festive season.

The room was comfortable, large and clean. There were very few staff on duty and this did present strain and challenge especially during the load shedding. The menus for ordering dinner from Mr Delivery were all out of date and further exacerbated by the load shedding. Breakfast was most disappointing. I understand that there are COVID restrictions on eating warm breakfasts in the sit down area however a pre packed cold breakfast from the fridge especially when travelling for business is inadequate and unfair given the costs. Suggestion would be to provide a take away breakfast that can be pre ordered from the like of MacDonald's or Wimpy or the like until the restriction is lifted or for the hotel kitchen to make breakfasts for collection in the morning that can also be pre-ordered. From a COVID perspective there were no sanitizers or sanitary wipes in the room. The number to access the property outside of reception hours on the key pad was incorrect on the key holder. Luckily a fellow guest was passing by and let me in when I had to collect a charger from my car at 7.00 in the morning.

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. We do understand the glitches which come with the Covid-19 pandemic at the moment. The hospitality industry has had a very tough time and we are just glad to be back in business. We value your input and are learning new ways of coping with these problems. We hope to be back to a bit more normality soon! We do have sanitizer stations around the building, and we supply liquid soap in the rooms, which we find to work more efficiently than the sanitizers. The room surfaces are fogged daily with industrial machines and bio protect spray and this has a long lasting protection of 6 hours on the hands, and up to 90 days on all surfaces. We can therefore ensure that the rooms are protected. With regard to the outdated information in the information folder, we do apologize for this and will rectify it immediately. We hope that you will choose to stay at Quarry Lake Inn in the future. Many thanks and kind regards Julie

Quarry Lake Inn is located on the edge of what could be considered a wild life oasis, the Quarry filled with water, with flocks of sacred Ibis (Hadeedaas) living in the sancturay singing morning praises and evening thanksgivings. What a joy! Staying in a such a peaceful place with such freindly staff is worth repeating many times. Thank you for the great service experience.

Had an excellent stay at this small hotel (with only 16 rooms). The place is well maintained and very clean in and out. The room with a king size bed was immaculately clean and tastefully furnished, a beautiful and clean bathroom with clean and fresh white towels. The area is tranquil and quiet offering a very peaceful stay for the three nights spent at the venue.

Very comfortable. Staff are flexible and accommodating, especially in making breakfast pack to to my needs and dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble. I felt safe and secure, visible security. Very convenient location. Good restaurants nearby. Well equipped room for eating in if you prefer (as I do, especially during this crazy period), with all the necessary cutlery, crockery, microwave, fridge and small table and chairs, both in the room and on the small balcony. My only down mark was the laundry, however housekeeping in the room was good.

Excellent friendly staff. Quiet oasis in East London. Perfect for business and leisure. Breakfast was great, asked for French Toast and they also had fresh croissants. Was especially quiet on the weekend, and staff directed us to the best restaurant in the area.

Modern hotel not too far from the airport and the EL industrial area. Rooms although a little on the small size were very cozy with a comfortable bed, all the modern amenities and very clean. Breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty with a variety of hot and cold dishes. All in all a comfortable stay
