There are only two good things about this hotel - the staff are excellent!! The location is convenient for town, business, restaurants. It is an old hotel that has been visibly very "cheaply" revamped, the rooms are clean but nothing exceptional based on the price, it has no views at all except of the roofs / sides of adjacent buildings....

Great location and excellent value.... but only if you get a deal, otherwise it's overpriced. Good staff and parking on site. Don't eat in restaurant though, the food is very average! Ask for room away from main road, otherwise early morning prayers will wake you x

From walking through the front door, I experienced helpful staff at every corner. Check-in was effortless and finding the room was easy. The room had (which was listed as ocean view), overlooked the roof of the adjacent building. The room had all the necessary ameneties, and was also equipped with a mini-bar. The 32" LCD TV was placed on the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in Nov'16. The positives first. This is a business hotel and the rooms and services are setup keeping that in mind. The rooms are small but well equipped to cater to the requirements of the business traveler. Our corporate rate included internet access which was offered to us in vouchers of 500 MB. The breakfast... More

We have booked 2 rooms for the 22,23, and 24th December and unfortunately due to my husband losing his job and informing the hotel of this in August they refuse to refund any of our money. I am bitterly disappointed as sometimes things happen beyond your control and amazed that a company refuse to consider any sort of refund due... More

This was our first stop in SA on our Explore tour. The rooms were fine, there is a small bar and a restaurant in the hotel. Staff were pleasantly helpful, however wifi was not free and this knocks one star off. Location wise, the hotel is well placed for walking into the main part of the city or even a... More

The hotel booking done via partner booking site. The site offered superior room as option, however the hotel didn't have this option. They upgraded me to a family suite. Immediate service no questions. Clean, comfortable & spacious. Parking however a sqeeze.

Lovely place to stay. Great staff, great location. The only thing lacking was internet access at excessively high rates. You need to do something about that. I would suggest some sort of uncapped solution, even throttled would be fine, I don't mind the speed of the connection, but a complimentary connection would be great.

Room and breakfast fine. Free Wi-Fi would have been nice. Ladies on reception during daytime were very helpful and obliging in complete contrast to the grumpy and unhelpful man on reception during the evening who appeared to regard the requests of guests as a nuisance.
