Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean. However, in general the hotel is weather worn and dated. Not a great experience I'm afraid. Wont be back soon.

Understanding the functions happening in your City
My stay was good, because I was running Soweto Marathon and when I came back around 12:30 after running 42km and the room was still not cleaned that did not impress me at all. Even after requesting a favor for someone to come, that was not attended to. The door to the toilet kept on getting stuck... Your pillows are also not comfortable and the bed in that room need to be changed, it was so uncomfortable. I hope this does assist

Friendly service!!
From the moment I arrived at the Reception Desk to the moment I left I experienced excellent service from friendly and very helpful staff members - congratulations on a well-run establishment. A special menu re the food from room service : absolutely gorgeous - I can recommend the fillet steak and the lamb shank. Room service eggs not so wonderful but it serves me right for being too lazy to go down to the dining room! I will definitely return.

Great hotel, good location and very comfortable room. I have an issue with the amount of ladies offering their services in the hotel bar. This should be cleaned up
