2/10 Poor

Disappointed and overcharge
My booking did not show at the hotel and we had to wait 2 hours in the lobby before we were provided with a room. I provided the proof of paying by but the hotel wouldn’t accept it. We only got to our room at 23:30. It was simply exhausting. The room is old, dirty and worn out. It is in poor condition and at $91 it has no correlation with what you pay for what you get.

Excellent accomadation
From the moment we stepped into the receiption, we were greeted with a big smile and a very friendly welcome. Check-in was fast. Our room was very comfortable. We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon at the pool side with hot beverages. The waitress was very friendly. All in all a wonderful stay.

Did not sleep a wink
I stopped over in Bloem for the night enroute to EC.. from about 22:00 until 03:00 in the morning the person in the room next door had the music soooo loud I could not sleep. At first I was convinced there was a club nearby only to realize that the music comes from inside the hotel. I am still not sure how the reception desk was not able to hear this sound. I eventually called the front desk and they sent security to address the issue..

We stayed for one night as we had an AGM and dinner to attend. Reception excellent when asked if we could move from 2nd floor to 1st due to my wifes not liking stairs due to her knees. However the bacon at breakfast was COLD but the choice of food excellent.
