I was very glad to sleep at Aboslute Cornwall. I felt at home away from my home. The hospitality during breakfast was marvelous. I recommended the place to my wife as well so that we can visit as family next time. Thank you

This was like home from home to me during my stay. The willingness to accommodate my requests for earlier breakfasts and dinner to my room when returning late was never an issue! Dinners were real home cooking - enjoyable. One can honestly recommend Absolute Cornwall to anyone requiring a comfortable away from home place to stay.

Before I became an academic I came from hospitality industry where I spent 10 years after which I joined the corporate industry. It gives me such joy and pleasure to enjoy best service in a very friendly and pristine and pampered space. The tranquility there is, really amazing. It was my another home. I had enjoy nicely done omelets during my stay. Congratulations, Lyn was amazing with communication and the amazing ladies in that reception and kitchen. The whole visit was amazing.

It was my first visit to East London, accommodation was a challenge because my colleague had to stay behind for an extended period. Absolute Cornwall ticked all the boxes , nothing is to much to ask. The facility provides all the comforts from a quick overnight stay to an extended three week stay. This will be our go to accommodation in East London going forward.

In the midst of loadshadding there wasn't contingency plans to provide for light, no bar fridge, and there is ants in the room. Towels not changed on the following day. Other than that the breakfast was great.

Very obliging and gave us a bed on short notice. Very accessible to and from N2. Room was spacious and was serviced with clean linen. Need to check the air conditioner in the room though. Very little cold air. (Room 4).

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Staff was friendly and amazing, and on the instance I had missed my breakfast, they came in to check on me and even prepared me a takeaway pack. Wi-Fi was a bit on the slow side, but everything else was perfect.

I had a great experience, felt just like home. The staff were incredibly helpful and offered quality friendly service, and the amenities were great. The rooms were wonderful and extremely clean, very neat and safe with secure parking. The location of the property is perfectly situated in a peaceful area close to shopping centers. Will definitely return on my next visit to the city.
