Positive Reviews

Clean rooms with comfortable beds.

Many travellers enjoy a good night's sleep in the comfortable beds, and note the neighbourhood is quiet at night. The overall level of housekeeping is satisfactory for most guests as well.

A few friendly faces at the front desk.

Many travellers have described the reception personnel as friendly, and have enjoyed good customer service.

Negative Reviews

No tea, breakfast, or braai.

Guests are generally annoyed to discover that kettles and tea are not provided in the rooms, and must be requested from the front desk. The rooms also lack mini fridges and microwaves, and there are no braai stands in the garden area. Though the hotel has offered breakfast over the years, recent travellers have been disappointed to find that the morning meal is not being provided, and there are few eateries close by.

Technical difficulties.

Travellers often comment that the televisions offer limited channels, or else poor picture quality. Though guests appreciate the free Wi-Fi, it is not entirely reliable, either. Travellers have found the staff sympathetic though unable to address these issues. Guests have also been dissatisfied with their polite but ultimately ineffective response to concerns such as noisy neighbours, missing amenities, and housekeeping oversights.

Not the nicest or most convenient location.

The hotel is inconveniently located for guests travelling without a car. Travellers note that taxi trips into the city centre and the beach are expensive, and that there are few amenities within walking distance. Some travellers have described the neighbourhood as dangerous, while others find it merely unattractive.
