    Frendly check in staff. Convieniant

    I did think it was a bit cheaky charging additional for parking. And the showers are not good.

    Superb

    Breakfast was buffet-style and always fresh and appetizing. Dining, buffet or a la carte, was excellent too. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We were given certain "extras" for no charge!

    More wardrobe space would have been nice and the shower leaked onto the floor.

    Staff were very helpful and made us feel valued. When they learnt our trip was part of a honeymoon break they had a complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolates and rose petals on our bed. The room was clean and well maintained and the concierge was so helpful with information about site seeing.

    Good

    Price was too much for such a small room. Room was well used, carpet very dirty, not soundproof, airconditioning very loud. Had to pay for Internet as a business user. Would look for a b&b next time, they are brillint, friendly, breakfast included, and free internet. These big chains should realise who stays there during high season and why. For people who dont know any difference its ok. But I stay 80% of the year in Hotels. This will remain, an un-memorable stop-gap, that I will not recommend.

    Fabulous

    The location is between the shopping centres and a five minutes walk to the conference centre.

    The hotel has just one restaurant and even that doesn't serve lunch

    housekeeping service sucked. we had to ask for shampoo and coffee they didn't care to stock in our room. watch out for cab fares ordered by the hotel personnel. Don't bother with the Gym.

    Superb

    The staff are so nice and hospitable. James at the door, Thabisa, Edmond and Alex at the elevator are always nice and smiling. Ahmad and Gospower in the restaurant. The environment is serene and quite unlike the cullinan. It's wonderful and I look forward to staying there again.

    Honestly nothing so far.
