Exceptional 10,0
Extremelu beautiful and clean rooms! The staff were very accommodating when i had a family emergency and had to reschedule as well.
Akshar, za2 night trip with friends
Very good 8,0
Brilliant Hotel but service should improve.
The hotel is superbly located with luxurious rooms, the only problem is the service for breakfast! The staff don’t look eager to assist and you cannot make sense of what is happening during breakfast. Besides the breakfast, the hotel is superb!
Nhlamulo, za3 night business trip
Good 6,0
The good: Large rooms, great WiFi and awesome location right by Gateway. The bad Unfortunately though the room is old so be sure to bring a 2 pin plug. Bulbs were broken. Housekeeping knock once and let themselves in. The rate says "free breakfast" however you still have to pay extra for a cappuccino.

Family Getaway
We needed a few days away and had a great stay. The room was good and Baby enjoyed the space. Good access to fine restaurants, Gateway Mall and the Beach. The bathroom tub requires attention as water stopper does not hold water in (not a big deal though), our stay was lovely otherwise.
