Perfect location \ Good service \ Great Breakfast \ Good Value for Money, however the wifi system needs an upgrade to become more easy to use. The guest parking has a difficult entrance and exit especially if you have a bigger vehicle.

A perfectly good hotel which did its job. The room wasn't huge, but it was clean & tidy. The staff too were polite & helpful (we got some very good advice from Ginah about where to eat & how to get the Gautrain to the airport rather than pay for a more expensive taxi). They also have a pool, a...

The hotel is extremely good and highly recommended for business or pleasure stay. The staff and services are very efficient with good security. The hotel's proximity to the prime business and shopping center (Mandela Square) makes you get the best value for your money spent.
