Excellent venue for Business Conferences, friendly staff.
Keep up the high standard currently set.
On Tuesday 10th I reported no clean towels in the Gym,
Coke Zero not available on Wednesday 11th in the evening. Small issues picked up but makes the difference between a good venue or GREAT venue.
To summarise, I had a really enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this for future Conferencing or private stay when travelling.
Well done to you and your awesome team.

My stay at The Capital Mbombela truly surprised me as the service, faculties and food exceeded my initial expectation. I found it refreshing that the staff promptly addressed every query and request. Even the maintenance team's prompt response to a maintenance related matter left me speechless.

It deems to be mentioned that the additional safety features pertaining to access to the rooms for staying guests only ensured that I have had more peace of mind.

It is a beautiful hotel with modern designs and deco. The rooms are spacious with a couch, tea point, tv with netflix, a very comfortable bed and quality pillows and my favourite is their bathrooms 😍! The hotel is about a 100 m from the mall, making it easy to shop around. They have a dj or live performance from Friday to Sunday afternoons to keep you entertained. It’s my go to hotel!

I really love pasta! But this Alfredo, no! It was far too salty and not fluid enough. The marriage of the chicken, ham and mushrooms…. NO!
I have traveled extensively around the world and this was the worst pasta i tasted! The alfredo sauce… too thick and pasty and felt like i was having a scrambled egg mixed with potato puree. And the pile of rubber your kitchen passed off as chicken was inedible.
Service was awful. I suggest you send your personnel to get proper service training. My wife ordered a 400g rack of ribs and the waiter charged us for a 600g. And tried to persuade me in a rude way, when I pointed that the price was too high. Went to correct it and still came back high! This time the explanation was the hotel system is different from the online system!
Shame on me for ordering!

For the exorbitant prices of the food the standards are really bad. I had a “Baby Chicken” Mozambique style it’s Actually an Insult to Mozambique-an recipe/food … chicken was just boiled and a bottled sauce was thrown over it 🤭. I would recommend Nandos it’s 1000 times better.

Receptionist also seemed to be overwhelmed with their word , patience is worn thinly.

My only concern is the loud music coming from downstairs. I think they is a club in the hotel. Music gets a little bit to loud especially after a long trip it may be a lil bit irritating.

Door in bathroom would close properly and even main hotel room door wouldn’t close properly.

I was suppose to be in a room with balcony and they placed me in one without balcony.

None of these are deal breakers. It’s minor things that can easily be worked on.

Ordered room service and the gentleman that came was smelling of cigarettes. Little bit of a turn off when you just ordered dessert and you aren’t a smoker yourself.

It’s a clean hotel with good service generally. Modern as well. I would still recommend the hotel though especially in Mbombela.

Unsatisfactory Room Service – A Disappointing Stay

My recent stay at Capital Hotel in Nelspruit was marred by an utterly unsatisfactory room service experience. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. The food delivery was tardy, and the drinks, specifically Mojitos, arrived over 40 minutes later than the food with melted ice and very bad taste. Despite notifying the staff, our request for salt was blatantly ignored.

The communication from the waiter was abysmal, creating an unpleasant atmosphere. Several of our requests went unaddressed, leaving us thoroughly dissatisfied with the overall service. This room service failure significantly tainted what should have been an enjoyable stay. The hotel needs to address these issues promptly to prevent similar disappointments for future guests.

A breath of fresh air from the normal. Own mini fridge, ironing board and iron in room. Room service in a jiffy. A La Carte menu fabulously delicious. Security is very advanced and room key activates access to strategic checkpoints, lifts to the floor and to your room. Recommended highly. Keep up the excellent service. Well done.
