Excellent service by the staff. It was a good stay at a great price. The dinner was good with very nice portions. Breakfast was a little bit of a let down and the R100 parking fee by the hotel was a turn off. Nevertheless, my family & I enjoyed the stay.

We made a booking for 2 x Superior rooms (4 guests) for one night (4th Sept) to celebrate our friends birthday. Upon arrival we discovered that the bookings lady made the following booking - 1 room on the 4th and the other on the 5th. Upon arrival rooms were not ready. We received our first room at 3pm and the other at 7pm the evening on our way out to dinner. Due to the bad service we chose not to eat at the hotel. The 2nd room which was eventually booked was small, 1 out of the 3 lights in the bathroom was only working. We had to shower in some darkness, window panes were dirty and cracked. Room had a terrible smell and the view outside was absolutely disgusting. No hot water when we showered. The other room had a bath and shower in one with a SHOWER CURTAIN!! This is definitely not seen at 4 stars hotels. The curtain wasn't the cleanest and there was no plug for the bath. We also experienced no hot water when showering. These rooms didn't have the greatest views as advertised in their wiki deal promotion and hotel definitely didn't live up to what was stated. We will never stay there again nor recommend to anyone we know. Shout out to PK at reception who tried his utmost best to fix the problem made by the booking lady.

Pictures did not match the room I got. Incredibly basic. Not very spacious. No views, window barely opens. Very noisy starting early in the morning due to cars and taxis so forget sleeping late. Also, room doors are very close to each other so there is constant noise in the passages from your neighbors as well.
