The location is not a good idea. Hard to be reached because of misleading sign. The Manager of the front office is missing the knowledge of how to deal with Guests. The other staff are friendly and helpful.

The towels and pillow cases had stains on them which looked dirty. And off colour too. The locking of the gate at night, went out and I couldn't go in it was locked and had to knock on the window for someone to open for me😲

The Hotel is clean, nice and the people friendly but the room look rather big on the picture. So, I was a bit surprised once checked in. However, I doubt that you find better rooms for a better price in Pretoria. What I miss, was a bit something extra, something of surprise like a fancy bar or a fully operative...

My overall experience at this hotel was excellent. The reception staff was very helpful and friendly. There is a lady that was working when I checked in (4 March 2017), I wish I had gotten her name, but she was very friendly, energetic and helpful. The hotel is relatively cheap but the standard of service is good. I felt safe,...

Everything was high standard, something I am used to. However, on this occasion I waited 2/3 minutes for the security staff to open the gate. First, it is not safe traffic-wise as the body of the car is half on the road; Secondly, it puts one at risk for criminal elements, as there's lots of people walking on the side...
