Juan F wrote a review Nov 2020
All the staff from beginning to end of stay, realy do treat guests with decency and friendliness. Bar staff nice, but Best was Mosa whom helped us at dinner, exceptional. Thank you. Rooms spotless and clean, fresh. Just only dissatisfaction was with a inconsiderate guest who let of fire alarm late at night, and when contacted reception, we had in a time span of roughly an hour phone twice for them to come sort it out. As this was first time bringing my Mother with. We bragged about this hotel numerous times, but with their delayed response, waking up dead tired and barely sleep. Drove home with sour taste in mouth. Stayed in rooms 911 & 913 on Saturday 7th November.

Some disgruntled guest flooded the entire hotel and guests had to walk up and down flights of stairs to access their rooms as the lifts were also affected - it was an unfortunate incident which affected my entire stay as I had to change rooms and couldn't get much rest nor the sleep I so terribly needed.

Dear Mr Olifant Apology Hotel 224 and Serviced Apartments Firstly, I would like to thank you for taking the time to review and to give us feedback with regards to your recent stay at Hotel 224 and Serviced Apartments. Also, thank you for taking my call earlier today. We really appreciate Guest feedback to assist us in ensuring we meet and exceed our Guest expectations. At Hotel 224 we strive to ensure our Guests expectations are met and exceeded as far as we can and when we disappoint our Guests, we take the situation very seriously. I am so sorry that we have disappointed you. As you are aware, we have had a very unfortunate incident at the Hotel on Sunday. A Guest created havoc by opening the fire hydrants on the floors and by vandalising the Hotel. This all happened in a very short time span and the staff did their utmost best to manage the situation. The water damage also damaged both our lifts and we were not sure at the time how long it would take for the needed repairs. This situation certainly does not portray the high level of service we pride ourselves in at the Hotel. We have never had such a situation before. My sincere apology for the situation and for the fact that we did not deal with the situation in a better way. Unfortunately, the Apartments rooms were all occupied, and we could not offer you one as a replacement. We have taken your comments to heart and we will make an assertive effort to ensure that we deal with the situation better, in the future. We do really hope that we will see you soon again. As a small token of our concern, I would like to offer you two night’s complimentary stay on a room only basis, to be used at your convenience. Please let me know when you would like to make use of the offer and I will make the reservation for you. Please accept my apology and please visit us again soon for us to afford you true Hotel 224 hospitality. Kind regards Derick Tait General Manager
