Positive Reviews

The breakfast is fabulous

The early morning breakfast was found to be excellent value for money. There was plenty to choose from and it was served in a pleasant, relaxing dining room, or out on the terrace. Guests loved the friendly accommodating nature of the chef who prepared the food, as well as the lovely staff serving behind the counters.

Well-located hotel

The popular Kloof Street with its many great eateries and interesting shops is right next door to the hotel. Guests enjoyed the freedom of being able to walk there in no time at all, and when did need to catch the bus, they were pleased to find themselves directly on the bus route.

Heavenly beds

The comfort level of the beds and plush soft linens ensured that guests experienced a great night's sleep. They mentioned that the rooms were reasonably quiet, and they were not disturbed by the other visitors during the night.

Negative Reviews

Dated, but comfortable for the price

A number of complaints ranging from dated hallways and room decor, to stained carpets and old bathroom floors were received from travellers. They felt that the hotel offered an adequate service for the price, but needed a general update of most of the facilities.

No tea/coffee-making facilities

If you just have to have that first cup of coffee before starting the day, then you may be a little disappointed to find no facilities in the rooms to prepare your coffee. Guests felt this should be included in every room as a basic facility.

Hygiene is a bit doubtful

The breakfast area seemed to need a deep clean according to guests. They described the area as sticky, the windows were grimy, and it was generally messy and untidy.
