    So so stay..

    My stay was so so, though they’ve made me wait for longer on my check in. Reception was ok, dinning hall staffs were friendly and helpful. Bt the food was so so. Breakfast was so so.. Bt dinner was terrible.. dessert worse. The standard is low yet we paid so much. Rooms are old ( doors and light switches. Cleaners they don’t clean the rooms properly. I wasn’t happy with their service as a result I don’t think I will recommend it to anyone. You have to ask for everything, shower caps, only one small soap,old wardrobe, yb for breakfast I had to ask everytime for coffee and they will give you one sachet and if you still want another cup I f coffee, you asked again( I wasn’t happy for that) in short I think the standard is getting lowered.

    Bitterly disappointed- feel cheated !

    The only good thing about the hotel is the location. Apart from that everything was sub standard. Granted , it’s supposedly 3 star - but that hotel deserves1 star. Where shall I start, apart from being old and in need of urgent refurbishment; the safety locks on room doors were falling off, stench on the floor we were on was putrid . Shower felt like a drizzle -maybe it was set that way because off the water restrictions! Called reception several times to alert them of the cleanliness of the lift as well as the stench of the 5th floor. Breakfast was like a circus , maybe a fish market is more apt ! Actually not, smelt more like a sheep farm than a fish market ! Porter - this services doesn’t not exist at this hotel. If this is tsogo suns standards , I’m afraid they will be losing a lot of patronage . Bitterly disappointed - I had unfortunately booked 4 rooms at this hotel for several nights. Needless to say it wasn’t a real dampener on our holidays .

    Overall is a good property and good hotel. The personal in the restaurant it is not prepared to receive a big group of people. They get lost and forget about the clients... But overall comparing with other Tsogo Sun hotels, the staff is less prepared to deal with the clients. Missing some professionalism. Need more training. I also did note like the fact that my bedroom had doors connecting to other bedrooms... made me feel uncomfortable. I hope my comment help you to improve. The hotel has lots of potential.

    Overcrowded. Even for breakfast long queues. No drinking water given. Room service not upto the mark. Luggage carriage is also charged so one has to carry their own luggage from car.
