    Fabulous 8,8 From 44 reviews

    Poor 2,0
    I Was Insulted
    The stay was wonderful, the staff very friendly, until at check out time when I was charged for a breakfast that the staff insisted I ate. I never ate any breakfast at the hotel, I don't even know how their breakfast looks like. They failed to provided me with any document showing that I signed for any meal at all. After they detained me for some minutes while we argued about the issue they offered to wipe the debt off, saying that perhaps it was an error on their part. I was very much offended because I was embarrassed in front of other guests who were at the reception at the time. I was insulted and felt very small that. I am still very angry about this.

    Very good 8,0
    Comfortable and clean
    This was a stay of 2 weeks while completing a local project. The rooms are comfortable, Good quality bed with comfortable pillows. I appreciated the availability of tea and coffee in the room, unusual in Africa. Wifi was fast enough even at weekends when it was more busy. As reported in other reviews the pool is in shade for part of the day because it is west facing but is in sun most of the afternoon. Not a place for a serious swimmer though! The hotel car park has over 50 spaces. A secure place and accessed by barriers. A security guard is always present. A sizeable shopping complex is about 100 m from the hotel and very safe to walk to and from and around. There are plenty of eating places for all pockets and tastes and also 2 supermarkets, some arty shops a cinema and more. Its sometimes difficult to get service in the bar/restaurant as the staff are not always visible and there is no call system. The menu is limited but food well presented and priced competitively with the local restaurants. The security staff of the neighbouring shopping centre tend to have loud conversations outside which echo around the neighbouring buildings and can be early in the morning so I suggest ear plugs for a longer night
