“Disappointing for the price”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

One of those anonymous, soulless hotels, totally overpriced for a hotel that seems to have passed its apex (amazing if you consider it has been reopened only 14 months ago). Aircons in several rooms don't work, lights don't work, toilets are not cleaned, internet is not working, and it seems nobody really cares, even if you bring it to the attention of the reception.
The restaurant has tasteless food, they forget the "cafe de paris" sauce on a cafe de paris steak, and the whole thing is totally overpriced for what it is. I now have been here twice in a row and will not return!

Excellent hotel. Good service (can be a little slow, but we're from NYC so everywhere is slow to us). But, overall - really good. Comfy, clean, and easy to access by taxi.
The breakfast is also really good! Lots of variety. They were willing to extend the breakfast time even though we woke up a little late, which was really nice.
There were too many flies buzzing around though, which was a bit disconcerting, but I think this wasn't due to anything being unclean - food was just around.
Overall, it was great. I'll be back next time i'm in Southern Africa.
