I liked my stay. A very motivated personnel and the combinations of food is divine!! The room was clean and tidy providing all necessary facilities to make you feel at home. Management should focus on the physical fitness facilities and sometimes the combined shower/bath tub set up is not really practical.

no smoking in the rooms ,make space for people who smoke SO THAT YOUR ROOMS can be good for every one, because your front dest didn't even ask if I need a smoking room or what I just found it like that and all rooms were occupied

Great front desk service - nice reception, prompt and courteous service. My room was very clean and spacious. The bed was conformtable and the right size. Previously I have had to contend with two small beds put together to give an appearance of a double bed, which I did not like.

It's clean and the staff are friendly, the breakfast is standard, so as with most best before dates it's quite okay. But, managing expectations not so good. Offered a choice of room all I asked for was courtyard facing, I got an outside facing one, traffic and baking afternoon sun, air-conditioning did not really work and sounded like a tractor...

Room Ok. Shower facility needs serious attention. Staff needs to honour promises of attending to complaints. In my case an adjoining room door remained unlocked for the duration of my overnight stay leaving me sleeping with one eye open.

everything was up to service - couldn't complain if i tried. The gym is more complete and htorough than the dump at the grand palm, though they could've been a bit more creative with their food offering seeing as there wasn't much vegetables or fruits. But that was the case all over - the steak was tiny compared ot other...

this use to be my hotel of choice but the last few visits hap been very disappointing, firstly the wi fi is never is a proper working order you need to log in all the time (this is very frustrating) once you are logged in the wi fi is so slow it is better to rather go with out it....

The hotel is great and has a wonderful atmosphere but the menus need a serious revamp. Having a spit braai twice a week can be too much for a long staying guest. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The closing of a Curios shop is a bad idea. It took away the convenience.

The room is very dated. The bathroom was unclean and had mold everywhere. The bed was hard, And the aircon didn't work. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone apart from backpackers and they couldn't afford to stay here.
