This hotel has great potential but needs a complete refurbishment. The rooms and furnishings are tired and honestly are not worth the money. The staff however were super but all the bedrooms and balconies are terrible. Breakfast was very good but worth a miss until this place is modernised.

I think that some recent reviews here are a little harsh. This is a perfectly decent Marriott hotel which does exactly what you expect it to. It is not spectacular, nor does it really give you any sort of local "feeling" but if you want a safe, clean and functional place to spend the night then this does the job.

Another lovely stay at a Protea Hotel, staffed by many lovely kind people, from Apumehele on the front desk to Agnes and everyone else in the restaurant. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms immaculately clean. We had a room right over the front desk in the main building because the occupancy at the time was low; the rooms across the hall all had magnificent terraces overlooking the pool. We had an excellent waiter at breakfast, and, when we returned for another coffee a short time after we left, he told us it was on the house. A very tiny thing to do but yet another that impressed us with the graciousness and training of the team. The lounge, where we ate dinner, was cosy and beautifully furnished with lots of books to encourage conversation.

This hotel is so tired and in need of routine maintenance and refreshing. I don't know if it was dirty or just old, but I didn't want to stay any longer than I had to! The hotel staff was not terribly friendly or maybe just not well trained at check in. Better at check out. The property backs to a golf course and the back garden is pretty. I couldn't access the patio off of my room as I couldn't get the door (with broken glass) open.

The main building was very imposing but this was a little deceptive. The room was clean and pleasant. The hotel is not close to town so unfortunately there was not really much alternative to eating at the hotel. The dinner was served buffet style and was sadly reminiscent of school dinners. Breakfast was better but not great. We only stayed one night so it was fine but I would have been disappointed if I had booked for longer.

The breakfast was totally amazing. I took my staff for breakfast and we enjoyed every moment. Their staff is super helpful and friendly. From cereals to full on breakfast with eggs, bacon, toast only to name a few........ and the fruit bar........ We also loved the new renovations at the bar and the outdoor swimming pool. Keep up the good work!

It’s like an American motel inside a gated community in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are large with two large beds. We stayed only a night, arrived late and checked out early, so couldn’t explore much. The best feature is that you can park your car in front of your door. This was very helpful as we were on a road trip. I only interacted with two front desk staff (while checking in and checkout), they were very friendly and helpful, pretty quick too! Excellent value for money!
