I stayed at this hotel with my husband. The room was large and very clean, we had the hotel shuttle from the airport and the staff were very friendly. Great choice of tv channels in english and strong wifi. The walls were thin and noise could be heard from other rooms. The area the hotel is in is fine in...

The hotel is nice, centrally located on a busy pedestrian street. A lot of options for dining around, but pay attention most of the restaurants and cafes close early - just a few stay open till 10-11 p.m. Anyway the Long Street is two blocks away and cpuld find there lots of options for dining as well.

Well, it is a brand hotel. You know what you get - but compared to those nice lodges and b&b hotels all over ZA, this is really nothing special. Breakfast a bit disappointing, very American. Service was ok, professional but without heart.

Was put in a small room with two single beds. The shape of the room was longitudinal, which meant anyone sleeping on the right-hand bed facing the TV (next to the door) would have difficulty viewing it. (The right-hand bed faces the bathroom and loo). Beds were quite comfortable, which resulted in a good night's sleep. Had asked for a...

I regularly stay here for business because it's close to Parliament. Always get great service with a smile from reception. The hotel has recently improved its free wifi - it was dire when I was there in January. Breakfast is adequate-buffet is standard and it can be full in the dining room.

Stayed here multiple times. Great location for central town & shopping, super good breakfast, friendly staff, parking (but tight so small car is good!). Great place for families. Very central so great for exploring town and night life (except V&A you'd need a taxi).
