Well, what can I say...I arrived here for half ironman. The price was average and it was right outside the start of the race and didn't look too shabby. I gave myself a high five, which should of been to the face. On first contact the staff were'nt really much help at all, everytime I asked a question it seemed... More

Yikes. In its heyday this must have been a great hotel with a stunning location. Now it's in the midst of a dodgy area, with dirty rooms, no aircon, coffee making facilities in the rooms or decent pillows. Stay far far away and save yourself all sorts of heartache.

Years ago this hotel must have been a real gem. Today it has lost virtually all its splendour. The Garden in the courtyard and the two ladies who try to keep this establishment together are the only positives to share about this place. I stayed in one of the Courtyard apartments. The beds are lumpy, my sheets on moving in... More

Lets start with the good points - Most of the staff were very pleasant and a fairly decent breakfast was served. The Interior of the building has a beautiful garden. If I could , I would give a one and a half rating. Having said that , there is no ways I can award a rating of two. I stayed... More

We atayed here a few years ago and was quite impressed, so when we went to East London again, we booked a room here again.....boy did we get a surprise. This establishment really took a huge step backwards. Nothing and I mean nothing had been upgraded or even maintained since our last stay. The bedding is old and weathered and... More

4 young 14 year old WP Waterpolo players sharing a room at the Windsor Cabanas were broken into whilst they were sleeping. 3 cell phones were stolen as well as R500 in Cash. The worst is that access was gained using a key as the room was locked before the girls went to sleep. They called their team manager the... More

This hotel looks good at first glance, but is simply dirty. The carpets were wet, the couch smelled, the beds were dirty and the fridge was mouldy. We complained but the management was unbothered about this hygiene problem. Do not stay here.

This is a very basic property equivalent to a 2 star hotel. The rooms are comfortable but very basic. No fans or air condition so when it is hot outside, the rooms can get quite stale. Minimal amenities are provided and rooms are serviced daily. If you are on a tight budget, then you will find this place suitable. Overall,... More
