If you're looking for accommodation with all the frills this is it. A very clever use of space for the kitchen and the bathroom is big enough to have a party in! The room was very comfortable with a lounge and dining area. The ironing board and iron in the cupboard was a great idea. I've never seen it stored like that before. It had a custom iron… Read more
If you're looking for accommodation with all the frills this is it. A very clever use of space for the kitchen and the bathroom is big enough to have a party in! The room was very comfortable with a lounge and dining area. The ironing board and iron in the cupboard was a great idea. I've never seen it stored like that before. It had a custom iron holder attached to the ironing board that enabled it to be hung on the hanging rail,very clever.We couldn't have asked for more. If traveling with children or friends there was a pull out couch bed too. Fantastic restaurant available should you choose not to eat in your room. Read less

We stayed for a few nights on business. The location is great and the view excellent. The layout is a little strange with no lifts to two floors, so if you have mobility issues phone ahead. If you have heavy luggage you get a free workout. The rooms are a little tired and In need of some refurbishment, especially the bathroom where there was… Read more

If you have heavy luggage you get a free workout. The rooms are a little tired and In need of some refurbishment, especially the bathroom where there was black mould on the ceiling. I had to move rooms because of a maintenance problem on the first night. I would stay again based on value for money, but I would also shop around. Read less

I forgot my cell phone in the car which my colleague had car keys and he was already in his room, which I couldn’t remember the number. I politely requested my colleague’s room number. Phathiswa and Nono refused cause against hotel policy to share guest room number.Fair and squire, for security reasons. But they couldn’t assist me by calling my colleague to confirm if he knows me or allowing me to talk to him. I had no choice but to raise my voice and promise to escalate this matter to the management, it is when Nono gave me my Colleague’s room number. One is wondering what if it was emergency, how will they have this matter. Read less

Ok except for the sewer water on the floor that leaked continuously in the toilet cubicle and the terrible smell it produces in their room 301. I got sick as a result and had to get medication for this. Unfortunately not a good experience.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Wonderful view, friendly staff and best location if you do not have transport to restaurants and beaches.!!

Wonderful view, friendly staff and best location to various restaurants within walking distance. Having a kitchenette was also fantastic as we could warm up pies or keep drinks cold in the fridge. The cleaners, servicing the rooms were unobtrusive and friendly.
