A conveniently located and comfortable hotel with efficient, friendly staff

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Mar 2024via mobile
A very comfortable hotel with an excellent ( and very popular) restaurant attached. Very convenient for the sea front and for food shopping in the 2 supermarkets directly below the hotel. A variety of shops and restaurants on the same street, including a small mall with excellent pharmacy. Staff were helpful and everything is clean and well appointed.

Main disadvantage is that there is no lobby or communal area to sit or to meet friends. Not a sociable hotel. However, there are enough bars and restaurants in the area to arrange to meet in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Lion’s Head

Very unsatisfied about our stay at newkings hotel:
- airport pick up booking: we had to wait for the driver that show up late and didnt not have any air time so we had to find a way to call her back,
- the restaurant didnt authorized to come with our 6 months baby,
- after cleaning the room, they dont refill water, tea and coffee eventhough we have booked the "Suite king",
- receptionist didnt explain so much about activities around neither accompany us to our room.

Always and very clean room. Everything is located near the hotel with a grocery store underneath excellent to purchase snacks and even breakfast. The views out of the room are so relaxing. Staff was nice and friendly and answered all my questions.

I enjoyed my stay at the Newkings as its proximity to walks on the promenade and restaurants is ideal. The centre also has 2 coffee shops and a Woolies and Spar. The hotel itself has spacious and modern rooms which make my business trips easier.

Had a great experience staying at the Newkings. Stuff is friendly, room is cozy and suoer clean. The location is perfect, its just above Zest restaurant, supermarkets and coffee shops. Just out the streets, you have variety of things to do, see and buy 😊😁. Super recommend!

We had a double sea view room which is one of their standard rooms i think. It had a separate toilet as you walk in, there was a shower and sink in room next to the bed.

Pros - large room, lots of space. Lovely fluffy, comfy robes. Large wardrobe with safe. very powerful hair dryer in room. lots of plug options including USB and UK plug holes by the bed and dresser. Great location with lots of bars, restaurants and shops walking distance, also close to beach. Super fast wifi.

Cons - Bed wasn't overly comfy. Shower grout and silicone needs replacing, also hairs left in shower. Noisy aircon unit. Not huge amount of choice within our buffet breakfast option. We had complimentary bottles of water in our fridge on our first day but these weren't replaced
