    Not child friendly hotel and poor service levels

    Definitely not family orientated hotel. Not suited for families or kids. Service levels very poor. Staff seem like they doing you a favour by doing their jobs. Room service never works and even when u get through to them they cant help and very abrupt. Very poor service all round. Wont stay here again. Definitely not child friendly hotel. Kids menu limited and they dont even offer to help when asked.

    Could have been better.

    Was not so good. Room service was terrible, took over 30mins for our call to be answered then over an hour for food to be delivered then. When it arrived it was cold. The room was good bed very comfortable but while there were alot of plug points there were no two point plugs. When went downstairs to restaurant there was only one person serving everyone and making all the drinks. Service really spoilt our experience

    Major security issues!!!!

    I chose this hotel as it is located across the road from the Gautrain station. When I was checking in at 20:40, another guest came down to reception and informed them that when he entered the room, he saw some else's belongings in the room. I still smiled at the receptionist and said that I hope the same doesn't happen to me. I went up to my room (622) and all was as it should be. I showered and got into bed at 21:15 to sleep as I had to be up at early at 05:30 to prepare for a meeting at 07:00. Luckily, I double locked my room and attached the door latch because at 00:30, I was rudely awoken someone trying to get into my room. I went to the door and shouted that the room was occupied. I peeped through the peephole and saw the poor person looking confused and then he took a photo of the room number. Moments later, reception called me to ask who is occupying the room. I was so angry and he simply said that it was a system glitch - well, they must have had many system glitches that night!! So, I paid a lot of money to have a good night's rest, but after being woken up, I struggled to fall asleep again and felt shocking in my meeting. I'm just glad that I double locked my room, otherwise I would have woken up to a stranger in my room!!! Shocking experience!!!!!!
