    Stayed at the Maharani for a week, during July school holiday. Had a great time. V&V breakfast is awesome! Next time around, we will book one room category up, with the bigger bathroom and separate toilet, which will be great for a family of 3.

    Room and Breakfast at Elangeni Tower was poor and disappointing. Staff were helpful to move me to another room at the Maharani Tower. I was happily assisted by Angel. Maharani Tower it was a delight!!
