I stayed here for work, so a group of us had rooms and also used the meeting rooms. The room was comfy and what I would call clean basic. Some of the surfaces are a little knocked and scratched and the paintwork might need a refresh; but bathroom was clean and plenty of towels. Shower has some leakage and slight...

Perfect for hollidays, best locations. Is not luxurious but it matches our expectations. Is more than enough to spend some days and enjoy that amazing town. Everithing was perfect, good housekepping even when we wake up late. Perfect in terms of quality, functinality and value-for-money

I stayed in a standard room which was spacious enough for one individual (or for a couple) with a nice TV and gadget charging points. I am sure they have larger rooms. It was a corner room with two large windows giving me great views of the buildings outside and a little bit of the table mountain. The staff are...

This was a very busy hotel upon our arrival. The front desk staff as well as the busboy were very kind and accomodating. I initially thought the elevators were slow as a result of our group checking in at the same time as a large Asian tourist bus arrived, however two days into our stay there it was apparent that...

This is a centrally located hotel at the corner of Strand and Loop streets where you have Steers, Debonnaires and Spur right across the street. The Red bus booking offices on Long street are just a stone's throw away. The hotel staff were very attentive and helpful from the day we first arrived to the morning we checked out. (We...

The staff was overwhelmingly gracious and helpful. The rooms and hotel are kept neat and clean (some age is starting to show). The location is good. I would've rated this a little higher except for the fact our AC did not work properly (even after maintenance checked it out) until the last night when the General Manager fixed it. Also,...
