The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious and clean and the king size bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast was most enjoyable. The hotel is on the N@ side or Ballito so there is no view of any sort.

One of the worst experiences of my traveling career. Food quality (breakfast) was appalling and the permitted noise level from the guests was unacceptable. When I engaged the manager on duty, she was arrogant and made absolutely no effort to keep me at the hotel. I checked out after the first night and was still charged for the full duration...

Average stay except that this hotel has such thin walls and you can practically hear everything happening next door to such an extent that we had to call the reception on a couple of times to ask them to get the neighbours to lower their TV volume or get their kids to lower the noise. Reception was excellent though. The...

My stay was a horror story: Greeted with a joke about my room being given away, I then got to a room that smelled of stale smoke. I ordered food with the mister delivery service via the front desk and was promised water right away. Moved to a new room. Water never came so went to the bar to fetch...
