I honestly do not have any complaints. Great place and great staff. Would highly recommend to any one. The place was clean, neat and is great value for money. I would happily return whenever I visit East London for business or pleasure.

We stayed here for two nights. The suite had everything one needed. We went jogging and afterwards had a swim in the pool. The property is close enough to walk to the beach and shops. Thank you for the stay.
