What a breath of fresh air this institution is. Friendly staff and grounds. Food and drink were reasonably priced too. The room was clean and neat. The only negative comment would be that the wooden sliding door got stuck often. Maybe a good idea to get maintenance to sand the door down and refit.

Aircon did not work in my room 😭 And being on the ground floor I could not open my room - this is very basic and you should check these things pro actively - It is not a clients duty to bring this to you attention

John Munkanu went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable. The rooms were clean and well-kept housekeeping did a great job. Guest services and the reception desk were always able to answer the questions that we had. The meals that we ate at the hotel were very good.

I stayed at the Lord Charles for a business event and had a lovely stay. The location of the hotel is very convenient - about 30 min from the airport.

The hotel is well situated and the garden and pool are very nice. The staff was friendly, room average for me and the WiFi do not work in the room. Good value for your money. The breakfast and the food in general was average.

Stayed at Lord Charles with friends as a wedding party. Breakfast was amazing, pool cold but refreshing. Bed very comfortable. Friendly check in staff. Booking beforehand was easy with Zenobia being very helpful. There were small things I mentioned to the front desk that needed attention. Like the wooden table and chairs outside was very weathered looking. Love rooibos tea... More

Attending a UN forum at the hotel this week, people remarked about odd parking reservations for the bays closest to reception: WOMEN ONLY. Internationally this would be considered blatantly sexist. If the sign said 'MEN ONLY' I think there would have been an uproar by now. How does the hotel management motivate this nonsense ... it is not even legal... More

The hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the local area, although I did find it hard to find by car as it doesn't have an exact address for the sat nav.
