The hotel staff are very helpful. They provided good service from day 1. Breakfast is basic but good. Wish there was a bigger pool.. Seems small especially now that we need to social distance. I personally did not use the pool for that reason. It's walking distance to gateway. Would recommend the hotel to provide a shuttle to the beach for their guests.

Stayed here for a holiday in KwaZulu-Natal. It’s in easy reach of the International Airport & offers guest secure parking (for a small fee circa ZAR 50). The rooms are typical Holiday Inn Express; basic but with everything you need; safe, tea/coffee, mini fridge. Housekeeping, was good on the whole, the room & bedding were clean. Towels changed when required. The were a few minor issues, ie air con going off, but remedied on request. There is a small pool & gym. The Butchers Block serves good food & reasonable prices. The ring & collect (from reception) was a bit hit & miss. The Gateway Mall with plenty of good eateries is within walking distance (adjacent to the hospital). There was a lot of building work on new hotels/facilities in the area, but there was no disruption or noise pollution. We’d stay here again.

And always as good as I expect. Many thanks. Big spacious rooms, conveniently situated within walking distance to a garage, shop and mall. The area is safe and the atmosphere is great in the courtyard. A pool and restaurant on site leave a guest completely catered for.
