Stay was ok. Noisy visitors passing to go to their rooms in numbers. Put visitors in floors strategically to avoid complaints. The separate aingle beds to make king bed were not comfortable for couple. The gap in between kept us apart. Fix that leak please, your wall will wven fall over... Its aready green behind your parking. .... Let mw know when u want to sell

It was dirty. There was poo wiped on the toilet wall. The room smelt horrible!! The pillows were yellow with stanes on them and smelt funny. We never even slept under the blankets!! Breakfast we never had as it was help ur self toest and cereal with Ricofee for R80. 00. There was so much noise with people having a party in the parking lot. People shouting in the passages. Slamming doors. Having to climb over the toilet to get to the basin!!!! Will NEVER EVER stay there again!! Another thing going up the stairs the two cleaners sitting on the steps with their cleaning buckets, torn clothes and no shoes!!! We booked out, not even a thank you or goodbye nothing. They are not Covert 19 standard either. No sanitizer in the rooms or in the dining area. Other guests not wearing masks at all.

The website promised bed-and-breakfast and kettle and tea in the room, that was the reason I picked the hotel, only to be disappointed at arrival. The place is nice though. Please update website and inform call centre agents of changes

This is an older facility but filled with plenty character and charm. Areas and rooms are spacious and very clean. Set in a quiet area and a very central location. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Gardens and Pool area are well kept and beautiful and peaceful.

Thank to Shakespeare Inn for assisting on short notice. For being patient and for opening early even though we arrived late. Your friendly service despite the situation was amazing. The room was clean and the remotes both worked. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with linen.

The place felt like a night club. Noise was hell. The mosquitos everywhere in the rooms. We could not sleep. I will never visit the hotel again. It was the night of hell for us. The receptionist could not help. And he tried to justify why there was that noise the whole night .

We always enjoy The Shakespeare.

Perfect for a Sunday Lunch. The food is really great, good value for money, and the portions are very generous.

Your staff are all very friendly, and efficient. All the facilities are neat and tidy. Your Cloak-Rooms are always so nice and clean.

It's a typical Old Hotel vibe - we normally eat in the Bar area, and move over to the "Stoep" area that walks out into the garden. Such a beautiful Garden.

Have recommended you to friends/family.

I had some meeting lined up in the Vaal Mall, Sasolburg & Vereeniging & found the Shakespeare central, the staff friendly & the a La carte menu had a variety to choose from. The portions were substantial & I was pleased over all.
