    Constant foul smell in passage on 8th floor, cockroaches (killed more than 5) majority in bathroom, dirty curtains, broken cupboard, very old towels, food expensive compared to other food places in area & jacuzzi was filthy

    Wicked centre location. Very friendly an helpful night staff.

    We checked in at 2 o clock. I already previously booked a cot( via phone a week before..) an they said they were getting it ready. We went out for lunch an returned an they said we will bring it up to our room. We went back out an returned to hotel. We eventually got a cot at midnight!! This is totally unacceptable, Awful hotel an service by the day staff.The night reception man said in his 2 years there, he d never seen a cot!!!????? Altough he did get it sorted for us.

    There was a leak - so they gave us an apartment for the same price! yay! ;0)

    Exceptional

    Due to a water leak being repaired, the room I had booked was not available, so the hotel gave me an upgrade at no extra charge. The room was comfortable and ideally located for my purposes.

    Internet access good, but the charge a little on the high side ~ free internet access as part of the package would have been preferable.

    It is situated near most attractions we wanted to visit.

    The service was great but they charged us double than the quote was given. The quote was r500 per room and we were charged r1000 for one night.
