The rooms are extremely clean however the area is noisy. I had a problem with the first room however the friendly staff found a better room for me. Even though the rooms were comfortable the area is noisy

2/10 Poor

Pretty sleepless Nights
The stay was not at all pleasing. On arrival I was told to pay an additional R50 for safe parking. (As a paying guest I would expect that safe parking be an added benefit of using the hotel as I would not trust to leave my car in the street given the area it is situated in). There is no noise insulation in the bedrooms as you can hear everything going on outside your door. Had a guest staying next to us who had their door wide open and having loud conversations in the Hallway over their full volume tv @ 01:45 in the morning. Barely had any sleep. The interior of the room looks very nice and was supplied with clean towels as well as coffee and tea for the next morning.
