    Superb

    It was convenient in terms of location as we had a wedding near by.

    I requested a room with view of the green before we arrived and was not granted this, the hotel was not full so I didn't understand the reason... we were given room with street view instead . Considering we booked 5 nights here I expected a bit more service .

    Hotel staff were very helpful when we needed to go to tehe shop. A porter named Thomas - kindly helped us by escorting us

    I requested an airport pick up but that did not happen. I also requested two wake up calls - they did not happen. I found any requests to be ignored and these can be very important

    Fabulous

    We had a wonderful dinner - compliment to the chef! The room facilities were great. The hotels appearance is lovely both inside and out. The staff were so friendly and helpful.

    The breakfast is very expensive. The R145pp was more expensive than our fantastic dinner, which was around R130pp and that included drinks and desert! Our room had scaffholding outside the window which spoilt the view.

    Good situation and views from front room.

    Initially allocated twin and not double room, were able to move after one night. The discount gym vouchers were non existent.

    Good

    The hotel is attractive, modern and very well located.

    Although attractive, the hotel is starting to age as it is not well maintained. My sheets had areas where they were torn - rather disgusting for a 4star facility. The bed throw had a cigarette burn mark. As for the bathroom, the bath had black stain in it, the shower did not drain well and puddled around my feet. The wallpaper had patch work - little blocks pasted over areas that had obviously been damaged.
