No aircon, Air cooler doesnt work as well. Horrible breakfast, smelly rooms. Extractor fans in toilets were removed. No towels, and you dont get any even if you ask. Checked in THREE hours after check in and owner said that we should have patience as none of his workers showed up for work!! So why did all of them leave?...

I had stayed at this hotel about 3-4 times in the last 15 years when it was run by Southern Sun/Sun International/Protea (forgot which group) and it was very good and professionally run. However, that was about 8-10 years ago and this past December 2015, I thought we would stay there again. Big mistake!! The hotel seems to have been...

We booked this hotel because of its prime location right next to the beach, but we should have first checked TripAdvisor. This is a hotel with massive potential, but it desperately needs room upgrades and a management revamp. The air conditioning in our room (and for that matter in the lobby) was not working, and we found the heat stifling...

Website shows a paradise of hotel. This place is an absolute dump. If it wasn't for my room that had an amazing view I would have left immediately. My bedroom door didnt close properly so I had to secure myself and family by putting chairs in front of the door. No fresh towels in room. Shower curtain 200 years old....

Absolutely Terrible. No Service. Breakfast no clean tables, food on the floor, no clean cutlery, no coffee left, no eggs... Christmas lunch advertised R250 per person with welcoming cocktails. That didn't happen and sauce was burned. When wanting to purchase a drink, they only sell 6 packs, which you have to fetch yourself at reception. As we booked in we...

This hotel should be avoided at all costs. It was by far the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in. All problems had to be sorted by walking the passage to the reception due to broken phone. 7 out of 7 days we had to ask for the room to be cleaned when we got back to our room...
