      Friendly helpful staff. Good parking.

      Some lights in room not working. Smell from basin and shower drain was really bad.

    • Single

      After requesting to change rooms, I was given the best room in the hotel with a panoramic view of the harbour. The big balcony is great. One of the duty managers was able to give me information about restaurants in the area but most of the staff had no clue.

      There is no life outside the hotel, no restaurants etc within walking distance. The hotel restaurant is not particularly inviting and room service is extremely expensive. I must also mention that the first impressions of the hotel are not good because the lobby is very uninviting. It is like entering a factory building. This may appeal to some people though.

      The rooms are very neat, spacious and romantic. We liked having breakfast at the hotel.

      Cold flooring - maybe it is winter . Security is not up to scratch. Going through the boom gates is like going to a factory yard. From the parking rigt up to the lifts - very unsafe. Nosecurity check. We struggled with the key everytime we came back from our entourage.

      your break fast is excellent. the staff member so friendly especially in reception. The security 100% cares.Thanks it was lovely

      Its proximity to uShaka Marine and beeches is the best thing in its favor.

      1. Restaurant has hardly any choice for lunch and dinner specially for an Indian. 2. Newspaper should be delivered every day. 3. A city street map is required in room.

      The design and the helpful staff

    • Single

      there was a good veiw of the harbour.

      it was quite 'cold' in design and feeling. I prefer a cosier hotel. It was also far away from the better restaurants and more vibrant areas.

    • Single
      8.8

      The hotel is ideally situated. I stayed there during my Comrades adventure. Although there was not really time to admire everything, the no frills and fuss decor worked for me. I would and already did recommend your hotel to friends and family.

      They offered a shuttle service from the airport at r400! Not competitive and not recommended.

    • Single

      Kindness of the staff

      The Buffet Breakfast was not proper

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      The hotel has a funky, youthful feel in a "warehouse" style. Quadrangle space in the middle is cool and a good place to meet.

      The guys could be more helpful by having real knowledge of the activity and attractions in the area, or even just a computer in the reception lounge for checking out the area.

    • Older travelers

      A suprise on arrival in seeing the High standard of the Hotel. I would recommend any other business person to use this hotel.

      Decor, cleanlyness,food

      Vulgar and poor taste video at reseption for every one to see (esp. the kids!!)

    • Couple
      7.4

      Tranquility very laid back it can be very good ikif there are more rooms with Double bed not two single beds and a couch in a room and a bar fridge

      Decor the restuarant and the Bar

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      It is fair value for money, and conveniently situated for harbour business

    • Family with children
      8.2

      It was very close to the beach and shopping facilities

      Just concerned about it's location as there were dodgy characters about a block away. This may impact on safety.
