“Good stay”
Reviewed 6 January 2017

Liked the hotel. Would like it more if cleaning of the hotel rooms toilet can improve and also the staff members at breakfast could become more friendlier and helpful. Offer each and every guest hot drinks like coffee and tea and not give preference to any racial group.

When arriving after a long drive one expects to have 4 towels and not 2 when booking for 4....one expects to not find the previous persons half used body wash in the shower and that there is tea/coffee sachets set up for a family of four and not two.....when one books for 4....the basics were missed and disappointed when comparing to other Southern suns. On checking out I asked for assistance with my bags and person sent porter to wrong room as well..Pathetic considering he had my room number to check me out with...

A very large hotel with long walking distances between rooms and reception area and no lifts. Friendly reception staff. Rooms are functional but could be slightly cleaner. Aircon works well. DSTV has the cheap package. Buffet dinner a let down but breakfast highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to reception

We slept here on our way back from Cape Town to Johannesburg. This hotel is as best suitable for this purpose - sleep-over. The dinner is poor and the bathroom is not of good quality. When taking a shower all the water ended on the bathroom floor outside of the bath.
