To be honest the time I got attacked by a rhino was a better experience than staying in this dump of a hotel. My family saved up all year to get a waiter who fancied my wife. The water didn't taste like water and the burgers were raw. My bed was made of cardboard and I still have a sore...

Nicely refurbished and comfortable spacious sea facing rooms. We enjoyed the breakfasts and dinners. Only disappointment was on Sunday when kitchen was closed we ate at Guido's beachfront. Cafe Neo would be a better option. All in all more than you would expect from a 3 star hotel.

Osner is always my first choice in East London, the staff is friendly and the rooms are awesome. I always attend conferences there and the service is always exceptional the only problem is the bar, it closes way too early

We attended a conference in East London recently and for the price we paid for the hotel rooms, value for money was not a proposition to be considered where this hotel is concerned. The bar closes at 21h00 for no apparent reason. The staff were remarkably unhelpful in that they were unable to give reasons as to why certain thing...

Hotel Osner was really a surprise! When outside, it looks like a shady motel, but inside the amenities and service are pretty awesome. We stayed there for a local Chemistry conference in 2013. The room we were in came with four beds (unorthodox, but great for groups) of which two were near the balcony door and two were further back...

Stayed here on business. While nothing special, the staff were friendly, the food delicious without being particularly fancy, the rooms adequate but not at all luxurious. Was a bit concerned that when it rained heavily during my stay the passage literally flooded and there was no real action taken - no signs re slipperiness, no efforts to mop up etc....

We used the Hotel Osner for our wedding on he 20/06/15. We received absolutely amazing service and great reviews from all our friends and family. The buffet was delicious with many options to suit everyone. Lisa and Ursula made sure that we had everything we needed. We were unfortunate enough to have load shedding in the middle of the speeches,...

I stayed here for 4 nights for a race taking place in East london. The hotel was very close to the beach with extremely polite helpful staff. Rooms were comfortable and VERY spacious. Some would say basic but for the price I don't think anyone could complain. Wifi you had to pay for but it was cheap and you could...

Superbly situated along the East London esplanade, secure parking, well maintained rooms, decent meals. Osner Hotel is close to the beach, shopping complexes and banks. It is value for money especially for people who come into East London from outside as it is easily accessible.
