We spent here one night. First we got a welcome drink, and a welcome gift on the bed. Room is good, Bathroom is old but clean. Friendly staff at the bar and dining room. Breakfast is really good, so much choice. Wifi works fine, you need to ask a free voucher at the reception to enter te wifi.

Nice hotel in Pretoria. Stayed there one night after a flight from holland. Food is very good, if you like much meat than this is the place to be. Bathroom, bed are average. Nothing special. In the area, you can walk around but there's nothing special. Early to bed and next day go on with your trip!!

Hotel is centrally situated and close to the Union building and the Zoo and a few shopping centres. Very friendly and accommodating staff, excellent buffet breakfast and dinner. Free WiFi available at the reception area, rooms have the dstv sports chanels. Only one problem was there was no dstv children programme.

This hotel used to be a good hotel in the 80's now it is situated in the wrong area. Fairly dangerous to venture outside at night. The rooms are fine and clean. the food in the restaurant is average. Close to the Union Buildings.

It was not a holiday vacation but we were attending Training in Pretoria so we searched for any hotel that would be convenient for us since one is not familiar with Pretoria. Very good, friendly and professional staff but needs some serious renovations and bridge the digital divide as they are still using keys unlike other hotels which are using...

I have stayed here a few times, now, and without exception, have found all the staff incredibly friendly and go out of their way to help you. As a guide, I often pick up guests at OR Tambo arriving very late at night, but they will always keep the pub going well after closing time to accommodate the guests. The...

I had to stay over for 2 nights during March. The reception area and lounge look good but the rooms definitely need attention. The dining area is outdated but the conference facilities was in good shape. I will only attend again if I need to but will sleep over elsewhere.

It was not exactly clear if wifi was free, but I got a voucher for no costs at the reception and was able to send some emails with my...
